Death By Advantage

by Cora Stewart
(Willow Springs, Mo USA)

We used Advantage on our cat, who was only 3 years old, and it killed him. They swear there is nothing in it to harm them, but it has to have something in it or it wouldn't kill fleas. He was our baby as we have no kids at home. I don't care what they say, I know what I saw when I held him in my arms as he was dying.

Comfortis & Cheristin for Cats
by: Anonymous

My late cat was on these flea poisons and they killed her. The was in June of this year and I am so very sad. :(

Do not use these products on your dog or cat!!!!!

They kill as they are insecticides!

I am so horribly sad I cannot even begin to state how I feel other than devastated.

I have not heard great things about Advantage either so I would avoid this too!

Lost our beautiful Kitty too soon!
by: Anonymous

I used Advantage/Frontline three times in 2 months on Vet's recommendation. Our beautiful cat developed Squamous Cell Cancer and got a tumor under her tongue. She slowly went downhill and couldn't eat, so we had to end her life on New Year's Eve. Heartbreaking. She was our only furry child so we are lost. NEVER will I use these products again!

Dog liver and kidney effects
by: Anonymous

My 2.5 yr old dog lost weight and hair, vomited, and became aggressive to other dogs. Liver and kidney enzymes were off the chart. Stopped Advantage and gave special diet of wild Alaska Salmon with rice for 6 months. She had almost recovered but after another dose of Advantage, she was even sicker.

She is now improving with reversion to oral heart worm preventative and flea/tick preventive on the back of her neck. So far she is doing much better; liver enzymes are almost normal now. Kidney tests are normal.

How bad is Fipronil?
by: Anonymous

I was spraying our house for Carpenter Ants using "Termador", a BASF product containing Fipronil. The Solo sprayer I was using blew up and I was drenched with the spray. It took a while to get out of my soaked clothes and then to get rinsed off. It's been a couple of years and so far, I'm alive to write this. A very scary chemical for sure!

My Kitty
by: Anonymous

I too used Advantage on my 4 year old kitty and he died. The vet said there was nothing he could do. I now refrain from using this poison on my other pets.
