* You may have seen an FDA warning about oral flea and tick medications pop up on your feed this weekend. We sell and recommend Nexgard and Bravecto in our clinic - which are both products mentioned in the recent FDA warnings.
A couple of things that are important for you to know:
1. The warnings from the FDA are not new. Each of these products has carried a warning about neurological side effects since it was released.
2. We prescribe thousands of doses of Nexgard and Bravecto each year and some of those are administered to patients with neurological disease. We have yet to see any major neurological complications due to the administration of Nexgard or Bravecto.
3. The dangers of flea and tick infestation are very real. Fleas and ticks can harbor infectious disease, cause anemia, skin disease, kidney disease, and joint disease -among other things. Fleas and ticks are a year round problem here - even in indoor patients!
4. Oral flea preventatives are only prescribed with a current examination. They are not right for every patient and the recommendation for one of these products is only made after a review of your pet's medical history and physical exam.
If you have questions about your pet's flea and tick medications and which products may be the best for your environment, your pet, and your situation, please don't hesitate to call us. *
