Flea and tick dangers

⚠️Does your dog or yard flea/tick treatment contain Isoxazoline? If so, you may be putting your dog at risk.

There are hidden dangers associated with this ingredient.

🤢The most common side effects are vomiting, itching, lethargy, diarrhea (with and without blood), and loss of appetite. Additional side effects include dry flaky skin, pruritus, anorexia, seizure, hyperactivity/restlessness, panting, erythema, ataxia, dermatitis (including rash, papules), allergic reactions (including hives, swelling), and tremors.

🛑 Although these warnings were issued a few years ago, there have been no ingredient changes and pet owners are still reporting complications to the FDA.

📝 “the FDA said it has logged about 53,100 adverse drug event (ADE) reports for isoxazoline products through July 31. (The first isoxazoline product, NexGard, was introduced five years ago.) About 5,400 of the reports cite one or more neurologic signs, such as ataxia, muscle tremors and/or convulsions. Other, more common, side effects cited on product labels include vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, lethargy and skin reactions.”
