On March 17, the EPA announced the results of its year-long investigation of spot-on pet products, and put forth a proposal to make spot-on products safer for pets. The proposal includes label changes and stricter regulations for spot-on products, including requiring pre-market clinical trails, post-market surveillance, and more comprehensive companion animal safety studies.
