    Bravecto Flea Medication Suspected in Numerous Dog Deaths Worldwide

    Bravecto, an edible flea medication so powerful that one dose kills fleas and ticks for three months, is being blamed for hundreds of dogs’ deaths worldwide.
    WSB-TV Consumer Investigator Jim Strickland has launched an investigation into the allegations that Bravecto is killing dogs. He has amassed a number of records from pet owners who believe the medication caused their canines’ deaths.

    Dog owners whose dogs died after taking Bravecto report symptoms including vomiting (a known side effect of the drug), malaise, seizures, and respiratory distress.

    Pennsylvania veterinarian Elizabeth Carney has seen the damage firsthand.



    “We’re seeing some of these dogs that just seem to crash for lack of a better word,” she said.

    Carney and others have petitioned the FDA to add warnings to Bravecto’s label.

    However, there is not a consensus among veterinarians about the dangers of the drug. Veterinarian West Hamryka of Sugar Hill Animal Hospital in Georgia, for example, has dispensed some 3,400 doses of the drug and even gives it to his own dog.

    Strickland has also obtained an FDA report that includes records of 355 suspicious deaths believed to be connected to Bravecto since its 2014 release.

    and to bad people don't listen, listen to their vet or someone that's had good luck with it instead of doing research.
