After noticing some excessive scratching in my jack russel (zoey) and pom (foxie), i picked up some otc flea and tick killer (Seargeant’s Gold Flea & Tick Squeeze On). I got the type for dogs 9-20 lbs. I applied the med at about 8pm. I noticed no adverse reaction before going to bed myself at around 10pm. At 4am I woke up to hear Foxie “hacking” in the bathroom (where they sleep). At first I was not too concerned but I continued to hear Foxie “hacking” and I could hear her nails tapping on the linolium (sp) floor as if she and Zoey were playing. This went on for too long so I decided to check on the pups. Zoey seemed just fine (and still does) but Foxie was literally maniacal. She had pulled out huge chinks of her hair, was scratching and biting as well as running around in a frenzy. She could not stop and relax for two seconds. I recognized that something was wrong so I immediately googled the flea med I had used. I found horror stories of what it can do to pets!!! I was petrified!! I immediately bathed Foxie in Dawn dish detergent twice to remove the medicication. Foxie appeared somewhat less distressed and the “hacking” stopped. Fortunately she has shown no signs of trouble breathing, foaming, siezures or vomitting. She is still hyped up and does not appear able to rest. I think so far the reaction is “mild” compared to what I have read. I will be monitoring her closely for today and going to the vet if her condition worsens. About 2 hours after her bath she was able to lie down for a few minutes. Please don’t use this stuff!! Consult your vet about appropriate and safe meds!
