Please please please do not use the flea treatment Simparica Trio, Bravecto, Nexgard and Credilio, they all have the same chemical class of Isoxzoines, which sadly all have reports of serious adverse reactions and death. Your vet won’t tell you this! For several years I have been telling family and friends not to use Bravecto because it kills dogs, and what do we do, we use one that we didn’t know was exactly the same. The fleas have been particularly bad here this year, so we stopped using the collars and went on to Simparica, on the vet’s advice.
At 7 am this morning Reuben vomited which was followed by a small seizure, he was not himself for a few hours, but hopefully is back to normal now, he was lucky, we are hoping that it is the end of it for him.
Piccina was not so lucky, she had a massive seizure at about 11 am, she was completely paralysed, and began having bloody diarrhoea. She was suffering. Her symptoms were side effects of this damn tablet. Our poor little girl was quite old, at least 16, probably more, we had had her 14 years. I know she was elderly, but this was not the way we expected or wanted her to go. Mino called the vet. By the time he got here, she was screaming in agony, it broke my heart. Our vet put an end to her suffering.
She was a massive part of our lives, she has left us with another hole in our hearts!
We just have to hope now, that Reuben has no further attacks, and none of the others has any either.
So please don’t give them these awful chemicals, it’s just not worth the risk.
