i asked Sabine a while back . here's her reply "Very new drug, was only approved in 9/2013.

I'm not really a fan of anything long-acting being introduced into the blood stream in the first place, and I'll sit and watch for a few years to see how this develops.

It's always preferable to not let your dog be a guinea pig. Not that I'd personally consider using this product

If there is a really bad severe adverse reaction with a topical, you can at least wash it off. If necessary some pretty harsh detergents can be used to remove as much of it as possible.

If you have a severe reaction in a dog to something in the bloodstream, especially to something long-acting, chances are much higher that something can go wrong.

Remember the whole fiasco with the Pro-Heart 6 injection a few years back?

Uh oh,
Zoe's been bitten by ticks this fall, and the vet thought it would be OK for her as a preventative. She has already taken
one. So far no reaction.

Now I'm a little worried. It's too late to undo it but I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed the rest of the month. I did ask her vet beforehand for his OK. Guess I'll just have to wait and see. But thanks for your responses. She's all of 6 lbs but thankfully still very spunky.

What's done is done, and as long as she seems fine, I wouldn't worry too much about THIS time. I'd still be looking into another flea/tick preventative for the future.

yeah not to worry. Sabine likes to study these things before recommending them. I myself prefer topicals for this reason. When it comes to pesticides like this ,it's not a case of good better best , but bad worse worst IMO

Scout and Truffles were on Revolution for a few years, but we occasionally would find a tick on Scout. I think the solution is not completely absorbed because of their coats...especially on Scout. The vet recommended a combination on Nexgard and Interceptor Plus. They have been on both for the last three months without an problems. I also was concerned, but really needed a preventative because of all the deer and Lime disease is in the area. No more ticks or fleas!

Thanks for your input Heather. I didn't realize you had the tick problem as well. Zoe had already had to have antibiotics a couple of times for Lyme's. She gets them in hard to reach places and is so wiggly when I try to take them off. My other dogs were very cooperative with removing them as promptly as I could but I can't always get them right off with her. As a matter of fact I had to have a vet tech help me with one of them. It took both of us! I appreciate everyone's opinion regarding the Nexgard.

I had to have a preventative that was effective because there is no getting away from the ticks here. It was a real problem because of Scout's coat. My husband checks their body daily with a flashlight! 😁
