In the Bio-Spotlight with Gracie

This is Gracie. Bio Spot Flea & Tick Control nearly killed her. Fortunately, Gracie’s mom acted quickly when she noticed that Gracie had become lethargic and was jerking and spinning herself around. She googled Bio Spot and discovered that the product, which is made by Farnam, had sickened and killed countless cats and dogs. She rushed her pup to the vet.

“I’m wishing I would have googled it BEFORE I used that stuff,” she writes in her blog entry.

Fortunately, Gracie was saved — but thousands of dogs and cats treated with toxic flea and tick products are not so lucky. Please spread the word.

    I am a widow on a fixed income. I have 2 dogs, both of which I used the Sargents Flea and Tick applications on. With in an hour of using it on my Jack Russell (3yro), she started running and tried to rub the med off. I gave her a bath with no sign of relief. I took her into the vet the next morning and they gave her a bath with a special shampoo. When I brought her home she was still aggitated. With in 3 days she had a siezure. I called the vet and they said it was because of the medication I had put on her. They checked her out. Three weeks later she had another siezure. She has had a total of 5 siezures to date. I have paid for blood work, medications, and other procedures. They want to do procedures that check her heart and brain to see what damage has been done. I don’t have $3,500+ to be able to do them.

    The only affect the treatment had on my other dog was hot spots that he chewed at. I had to take him to the vet to get him treated. He is a Chow mix male.
    Both dogs have been fixed. They are all I have and they are great watch dogs, as I live alone.
