SFSPCA Statement on Topical Flea and Tick Products

Thursday, March 18th, 2010
The EPA announced on 03/17/2010 that they will be taking a “series of actions to increase the safety of spot-on pesticide products.” The topical flea and tick products that the SFSPCA Veterinary Hospital dispenses through our pharmacy are chosen to be the very safest and most effective available. Adverse reactions to flea and tick products seen at our Veterinary Hospital are most often associated with products purchased across-the-counter from non-veterinary sources. The San Francisco SPCA recommends that any flea and tick prevention product used on your companion animal be obtained either from your veterinarian or be based on the individual advice of the veterinarian who knows your pet. Preventing fleas is important and following the recommendations of your veterinarian is best for the health of your animals.

We are offering a $500 reward for her safe return.
