INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Elanco Companion Animal Health has launched its second product in the new year with the launch of Trifexis™ (spinosad + milbemycin oxime), a broad-spectrum parasiticide that kills fleas and is indicated for the prevention and treatment of flea infestations, the prevention of heartworm disease and the treatment and control of adult hookworm, roundworm and whipworm infections in dogs and puppies 8 weeks and older, and 5 pounds of body weight or greater.
