Elanco and Canine Assistants want to know: what does your dog mean to you? We asked pet owners this question and learned a lot about the bond they have with their amazing dogs. Here are a few of their inspiring stories. For more information about Canine Assistants, visit http://CelebrateTheBond.com.

Ask your veterinarian about Trifexis® (spinosad + milbemycin oxime), the 3-in-1 combination tablet that kills fleas and prevents infestations, prevents heartworm disease, and treats and controls hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm infections.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
See the full product label for complete safety information at http://www.elanco.us/labels/Companion-Animals/Trifexis.pdf

Serious adverse reactions have been reported following concomitant extra-label use of ivermectin with spinosad, one of the components of Trifexis.

Treatment with fewer than three monthly doses after the last exposure to mosquitoes may not provide complete heartworm prevention. Prior to administration of Trifexis, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection.

Use with caution in dogs with pre-existing epilepsy. The most common adverse reactions reported are vomiting, depression, itching and decreased appetite.

To ensure heartworm prevention, observe your dog for one hour after administration. If vomiting occurs within an hour of administration, redose.

ABOUT THE BOND
Your dog may be a service companion or the comic relief in your house, an exploring buddy or the instigator of social interactions. Regardless of the role your dog plays in your life, there is an incredible and mutually beneficial bond people have with their pets.

Service dog recipients report incredible changes after receiving their companions. While day-to-day tasks that the dogs perform — like turning lights on and off and retrieving objects — are vital in helping their owners obtain a sense of freedom, it’s the everlasting bond that is so rewarding to witness.

This everlasting bond is a natural part of the placement process at Canine Assistants. Service dogs choose their humans organically; they are never preselected or arbitrarily placed.
This respect for the natural way the human-animal connection occurs at Canine Assistants along with an acknowledgement of the role dogs play in our daily lives is the first step in being able to celebrate the bond.

THE ROLE OF YOUR VETERINARIAN
A long-lasting human-animal bond requires a happy, healthy pet. This makes the role of your veterinarian and her team a key component in maximizing the bond. Your veterinarian not only provides medical care and treatment, but also serves as a counselor in encouraging positive relationships between you and your pets. Skilled veterinarians know it’s this bridging between emotions and medicine that is the heart and soul of their profession.

By celebrating the bond—and celebrating the veterinarians that stand behind it—we help protect the depth and breadth of the important connection between humans and animals.
