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?
