ALBANY, GA (WALB) – You may want to talk to your vet before you treat your family pet for fleas and ticks this spring. Some flea and tick products are making pets sick and in some cases killing pets.
Veterinarians say products purchased in chain stores can be dangerous for small dogs and cats, because of the concentration of toxins.
The Environmental Protection Agency is developing stricter testing for those products. Vets say the spot-on treatments can cause skin irritations and even neurological problems that can lead to seizures.
"It's hard for me to believe that it's legal for these product to be on the shelf when we see it so frequently, and you can walk into your Veterinarians office and get their recommended product and get no complications from it at all and they actually work," said Dr. Steve Whatley of Bush Animal Clinic.
Veterinarians say if you use one of these products on your pet be sure to place it between their shoulder blades, where they can't lick the solution.
If you notice your pet has a reaction to the product, you want to wash the product off and call your vet.
