    These pesticides have been killing pets for a long time. Finally enough pets have died, they are putting a notice out about it. Facebook gov owned site would remove any comments about pets dying or severe side effects from
    Bravecto
    Credelio
    Nexgard
    Simparica
    Big Pharma ….
    Merck Animal Health (Bravecto): 800-224-5318
    Elanco Animal Health (Credelio): 888-545-5973
    Merial (Nexgard): 888-637-4251
    Zoetis

    I called them before and they basically could care less about the severe suffering from their toxic pesticides. These are not medicines, they do not heal. These are toxic chemical pesticides.

    There are safe natural alternatives to repel fleas, ticks, etc

      I am confused… Why should “Facebook gov owned site would remove any comments about pets dying or severe side effects ” ??? That doesn’t make sense to remove the warnings. Please explain.

    I gave my 12 pound chiweenie capstar last year and she ended up with acute kidney failure. She is doing well today, but she almost died. Now on K/D food the rest of her life, she was only 2 at the time and healthy. I won’t give her, nor will my vet give her flea meds, collars, etc anymore. Chemicals, pesticides, suck!!! They should take them all off the market!

    Our dog had seizures after taking flea and tick oral medicine. She is on medicine now to stop and control her seizures. The vets denied any correlation to the medicine when we questioned them about the possibility. Please be careful we watch our poor girl suffer through her seizures frequently. If it was safe we would use it for humans to control ticks.

    1. Toni

      Thomas, try some CBD oil for your fur baby. It might help w/ the seizures and its not harmful.

    What’s safe for fleas/ticks then?

    My Border Collie got ill shortly after I got her a Serresto collar, lethargy and diarrhea, I took the collar off and she was fine within hours.

    Are the adverse effects always Immediate or can they still occur weeks after the application?

  9. MARIA SGROI

    THE FDA SHOULD SHUT THEM DOWN!! THEY NEVER WILL THOUGH, IF THEY GET AWAY WITH KILLING PEOPLE EVERYDAY, WHY SHOULD THEY CARE ABOUT POOR HELPLESS ANIMALS!! AFTER ALL THEY CANT SPEAK!!!!

    For my two dogs we use essential oils (product called Flea Flicker/Tick Kicker is great) and food-grade diatomaceous earth on their coats. We also bathe them every two weeks. BUT we also don’t walk them in the woods or allow them to run through any tall grasses or brush so their exposure to ticks is low. All of the preventive measures have worked well for us, but I know lots of people like to take their dogs hiking and camping and natural methods usually aren’t 100% effective.

     I was diagnosed a year and a half ago with Lyme disease after three months of flu-like symptoms and severe knee and foot pain. Finally, after several tests and an expensive MRI, I was diagnosed. I was put on doxycycline and had a severe reaction to that, so then they put me on a different medication. My pain still didn’t go away for good. I still had bouts of pain and fatigue that last weeks. I was seeking something to help regain my life to be able to do things for myself. Through my primary physician i learnt about a Lyme disease herbal formula from NATURAL HERBAL GARDENS and their success rate with the treatment, i immediately started on the Lyme disease herbal protocol, I am glad to report the herbal formula worked effectively and there was no side effects, I had a total decline in symptoms, the pains, chronic fatigue and other symptoms stopped, my Lyme disease is totally REVERSED

    Hartz over the counter flea treatments should be top of the list, even better taken off the market. So many pets have been killed and or injured with huge medical bills just to try to save them from using Hartz products! I almost lost my cat, watching her have seizures was frightening.
