    Question on dog's medicine!

    I'm hoping someone may be able to help me with a question about medicine for my dog...

    My local vet recommends using Vectra for flea and tick control/preventive. I did a little online reading and found some complaints from dog owners about using this product. These were just anecdotal reports but made me a little nervous.

    I know there are some folks associated with the veterinary college that frequent this board so was hoping someone could give me an educated opinion about this product. I sure don't want to do anything that could cause harm for my dog.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I don't know for sure, but Vectra is vet only sales so that's why they recommend it.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
