A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
TRIFEXIS: One chewable tablet, two trusted active ingredients (spinosad + milbemycin oxime)
Protection made easy against heartworm, fleas and three of the most common types of intestinal parasites. TRIFEXIS kills fleas and prevents flea infestations, treats and controls hookworms, whipworms and roundworms, and prevents heartworm disease. TRIFEXIS is for use in dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age or older and 5 pounds of body weight or greater.
TRIFEXIS prevents heartworm disease by killing certain stages that develop after an infected mosquito bites a dog. As with other heartworm preventives, TRIFEXIS does not kill adult heartworms. TRIFEXIS can prevent flea infestations from becoming established, and can also remove any fleas that are on your dog at the time of treatment.
Please note that Trifexis is also known as Panoramis if sourced from Elanco AUS verus Elanco U.S. Panoramis is the exact same as Trifexis, just branded as Panoramis Internationally.
TRIFEXIS is given orally, once a month. For heartworm prevention, give once monthly for at least 3 months after exposure to mosquitoes.

Administer TRIFEXIS with food for maximum effectiveness. If a dose is missed and a monthly interval between doses is exceeded, then immediate administration of TRIFEXIS with food and resumption of monthly dosing will minimize the opportunity for the development of adult heartworm infections and flea re-infestations. If vomiting occurs within an hour of administration, re-dose with another full dose. TRIFEXIS should be administered at monthly intervals beginning within 1 month of the dog's first seasonal exposure and continuing until at least 3 months after the dog's last seasonal exposure to mosquitoes Note: As with other heartworm preventatives, prior to administration of TRIFEXIS, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection.
TRIFEXIS is available in five tablet sizes. Each tablet size is available in color-coded packages of 6 tablets.
