ProMeris/Fort Dodge --> Amitraz
as "tick-danger" is increasing here in northern Europe, a new preventive "spot on" has come in and it's based on Amitraz....
I read the european vet health org. evaluation....and I've read many threads on it on several dog-fora.....it's really heavy stuff and the dogs get really sick for sevaral days.....apathic, breathing problems, neurological symptoms etc
I am succesfully using Frontline Combo, and will be using Advocate soon...My vet doesn't even take in the new stuff as he is very concerned about it and wants to wait out more test results and experiences by other vets...
Have you got any experience with this new stuff?
It seems that Shelties get severe health problems.....
I wish the tick wouldn't carry such heavy bact. and virusses.......also for humans....they really scare me........when I go to the forest I spray on 40% DEETon myself, seems to keep 'em away for 4 hrs.....
