FDA Has Urgent Alert For Pet Owners

(Washington, DC)  --  The FDA is  warning pills meant to protect cats and dogs from fleas and ticks could  cause neurological problems.  

Doctors say pet owners need more warnings,  and are issuing an alert to owners and veterinarians saying they will  be requiring more clear labels on the products.  A pesticide used in the  medication sold under the brand names Bravecto, Credelio, Nexgard and  Simparica can cause symptoms such as stumbling or seizures among the  animals.  

After careful review, the FDA says these products are still  safe and effective for a majority of animals.  They say although most  won't have the adverse reactions, it's important for pet owners and vets  to know the risks and get more information.
