FDA Links Popular Flea, Tick Medications To Neurological Problems In Dogs, Cats

Flea tick products can cause seizures in pets FDA warns

Keeping your dog or cat up to date with preventative treatments so they remain free of fleas and ticks is something that every responsible pet owner should do, but a new alert from the FDA suggests that one particular class of these drugs could cause some pretty serious adverse effects.

"Isoxazoline products have been associated with neurologic adverse reactions, including muscle tremors, ataxia, and seizures in some dogs and cats", the FDA says.

The FDA says the pills and chews in question are sold under the brand names Nexgard, Simparica, Bravecto and Credelio and all include the pesticide Isoxazoline. These products are approved for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations, and the treatment and control of tick infestations. Pet owners who are now treating their furry friend with Bravecto, Nexgard or Simparica should be wary, as the agency said some animals treated with these medications "have experienced adverse events such as muscle tremors, ataxia, and seizure".

"Veterinarians should use their specialised training to review their patients' medical histories and determine‚ in consultation with pet owners‚ whether a product in the isoxazoline class is appropriate for the pet".

While the products already mention the risk of the neurological side-effects the FDA says it will require clearer labels. In the first three years after approval, the FDA pays particularly close attention to adverse event reports, looking for any safety information that may emerge.
