Is Bravecto Safe?

While sniffing around the internet I came across contradicting reports about a newer flea & tick medication called, Bravecto. This product seems to have some serious controversy around it. On the one hand the American FDA says it’s safe but there are many people claiming it can cause serious harm including blindness, kidney damage & even death.

There is a Facebook page called, “Does Bravecto Kill Dogs“that has close to 17,000 members. There is also a petition through change.org asking that Bravecto be removed from the market.

While doing my sniffing about I could not come to any clear conclusion about this product. But I did see this, the European Medicine Agency reported in June of this year that besides multiple general short lived side effects, there have been approximately 2000 serious cases of adverse reactions from Bravecto such as seizures, renal failure, liver damage, etc, including 470 deaths.

Before giving your good dog any medication be sure to do your due diligence. Consult your vet, ask lots of questions & look online for reports & recalls.
