Some pet medications have been linked to pet illnesses, while dog and cat owners may feel they have no one to complain to about this if it is true. Where can pet owners find accurate information?
The following link from WSBTV will bring readers to the story of one dog owner who believes her dog was made ill by Trifexis:
Pet owners have filed 2200 reports of the drug causing their dogs to vomit. There are 600 cases of lethargy, and 31 reports of dog deaths. That's about one per month since the drug hit the market.
The warning on the Trifexis box states mild side effects. Connell admitted to Strickland that the company has gotten reports of dogs suffering seizures, but Elanco has found no link to any dog deaths.
Readers will soon learn there are many believing their pet was made seriously ill or killed by medications given with a veterinarians blessings. This is not to say the vet is to blame, however-what is made available to pets perhaps should be reconsidered.
Anyone who has lost a pet to a medication error or because a trusted flea treatment was not in the best interest of the pet may feel products given orally to kill fleas is not the best choice.
