What happens if my dog ate 4 tablets of Trifexis?

This is the equivalent of 5/2.2 = 2.3kg. This means that if he ingested more than 2.3x400mg = 909mg of Trifexis then I would be worried. The chihuahua size of Trifexis contains 140mg of spinosad. So, 4 tablets would be 4×140=560mg. As 560mg is less than the toxic dose for your dog of 909mg, Snarles really should be ok.
