ProMeris/Fort Dodge --> Amitraz

Hello all,
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'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.....

Suzanne and her Sparkling Sierra, godmother to Dinky (*) and Baileys!

I do know that fort dodge has been preparing this product for at least 2 yrs now. We were expecting it to come on the market this spring but it did not come. They are waiting for us to be so fed up with Frontline/Advantage/Advantix so that when they come out with it everyone will rush out to buy it. Good marketing ploy but that means we are still waiting. I hope it is everything they talked it up to be...but we were also told that proheart would be back on the market about 2 1/2 yrs ago and that is still not back on the market. So I have no clue when it will come out in the USA. There are many drugs that are not allowed in the united states but all other countries are using them....
