Recently the FDA posted an alert that the flea and tick medications in the isoxazoline class are now carrying a possible seizure risk in dogs and ataxia in cats. These are FDA approved products that are safe and effective for the majority of healthy pets. There have been post-approval studies in Credelio, Simparico, Nexgard, and Bravecto which are all in the isoxazoline class of drugs.
Finding the perfect diet for health, longevity, and fitness has long been an obsession of Americans.
