Pet owners beware: FDA warns of potential dangers of flea and tick pills

Labels on the products need to lay out more clearly how to use them safely, the FDA says.

Pills or chews that protect dogs and cats against fleas can cause neurological problems such as stumbling or seizures, and pet owners need more warning, the Food and Drug Administration said Thursday.

The FDA issued an alert to owners and veterinarians and said it was requiring clearer labels on the products.

The flea pills and chews all contain a pesticide called isoxazoline, the FDA said. They include products sold under the brand names Bravecto, Nexgard and Simparica.

I RECOMMEND AVOIDING ANY OF THESE FOR YOUR YORKIE

BRAVECTO

NEXGARD

SIMPARICA

 

Instead, rather use a dip specified for use in puppies. Bob Martin and Dazzle dips are regularly used by myself and I have never had any adverse effects in any of my yorkies or puppies
