In response to the recent conversations regarding a specific drug class of flea/tick preventatives (including Bravecto, Nexgard, Simparica, and Credelio).

We at the Country Doctor Veterinary Hospital wanted to provide you with an accurate source for this information and to assure you that we have prescribed these products to patients as well as using them on our personal pets.  We have found them to be safe and effective and have not had any reports of neurological events. We have seen a few cases of gastrointestinal issues that resolved.

We recommend preventatives based on your pets’ health history and exposure factors and do not rely on one product for all of our patients. 

Please take the time to review the statement made by the FDA and take note that they consider the products in this class of drug to be safe and effective for dogs and cats.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to direct them to our veterinarians and staff here.
