10 Year old dachshund had horrible reaction!
An_256546 posted:
My 10 year old doxie has always used frontline, but we moved to an area with a lot of ticks. With a new baby, we were afraid that the tick would come in on a dog if it did not bite them - and then could get on the baby.
So my husband tried Vecta 3D from the new vet recommendation.
He put the Vectra on the doxie and about 4 hours later she wouldn't move. It was like she couldn't lift her head and she wouldn't walk - even for table food! She would just lay and whine.
The next morning she seemed a lot better but I started reading horror stories about the Vectra. I gave her a bath and she seemed back to her old self for the most part. She is walking with her tail tucked to one side. I will be taking the Vectra back to the vet and report what happened.

I would NEVER recommend this product and I don't know how it is sold with these types of adverse reactions!!
Sandy Willis, DVM, DACVIM responded:
You are doing the right thing by taking the product back and having your veterinarian report it to the manufacturer. Any medication can have side effects but consumer feedback such as yours are important to make sure we are not encountering a more significant side effect. Our industry partners/drug companies carefully monitor these adverse effects. And your veterinarians should make sure your doxie is back to health. Dr. Sandy
