One does need to keep in mind that what we give to our pets for flea treatment are actually chemicals. Flea treatment reactions are bound to occur in that case. Lots of times pet owners are so concerned when they see their pet infested with fleas that they reach for the first product that they come across without thinking of what could be the side effects of these on their pets.
Several pets have suffered neurological damage after they have been given flea treatment tablets or had the medication applied on their coats. The Flea treatment reactions could be uncontrollable at times and might even result in the death of your pet.
Read the fine print very carefully. That is why it is called fine print. Check out for any reactions mentioned out there and be vigilant about them. The very first instant that your pet displays these symptoms you must rush it to the vet. It could save its life.
Some of the flea treatment medication is laden with pesticides that you would never ever dream of administering to your pet. It is like feeding them poison with your very own hands. There have been pets who have lost their majestic coat after a treatment or in a worst case scenario even had their skins burnt due to the chemicals used. Pets can have seizures due to Flea treatment reactions which could choke them too. Follow the application and the administration material stringently to avoid these kinds of situations. After a topical application if you see your pet scratching unduly and see an adverse reaction occurring, immediately bathe it. This will ensure that all the chemicals are washed off before they can do any further harm to your pet. Most of the over the counter flea products must be endorsed by the vet before you use them.
