Pet owners are commonly raising concerns about oral generation oral flea and tick preventative medications being linked to seizures in dogs.  What began as a retrospective labelling requirement on certain product by the FDA has taken on a life of its own with claims of products causing seizures and other ailments (most not included in FDA listed adverse effects), and even death.  In this episode, Dr. Roger sets the record straight on the real world safety and possible risks associated with these products.
