if this has already been asked and answered, I apologize in advance. I still struggle with finding everything I want here. Lol! I received a notice from Whole Dog Journal recently advising people to hold off giving their dogs and cats four flea preventatives due to an announcement by the FDA. Here is the article: https://www.whole-dog-journal.com/blog/Hold-Off-on-Those-Oral-Flea-Killing-Medications-21926-1.html.
On September 20, the FDA issued a communication for pet owners and veterinarians, warning about the potential for neurologic adverse events following the administration of certain flea and tick products to dogs and cats. The products named in the release are oral products, available by veterinary prescription only, that contain isoxazoline-based ingredients. These include Bravecto, Credelio, Nexgard, and Simparica.
I’m wondering what people think about this warning. I am currently using Nexgard, but think I will hold off on giving my girl any more, but what to use in the meantime? Thoughts?
