spot-on reaction, help
Last summer each month after applying the monthly spot-on product for fleas/ticks (I have used Bio-Spot for many years with total success on all prior GSD's, and we live on farm, fleas and ticks abound)........but with Suzi, who was 14 months old at time of first dose, she became very restless, agitated every month. This behavior lasted at least several hours. Distraction did not work, after a good play/exercise session after dosing, as soon as activity stopped, the agitated, almost-frightened behavior resumed.
Vet and techs said they see this with spot-on products in some dogs. The last month in the fall that I used it, I did not apply the entire dose and her reaction was not as pronounced as before (she is a very lean-to-thin high-drive type; my thinking was that even though I used the dosage for her weight range, maybe it was still too much.)
The season for starting flea/tick prophylaxis where I live is soon, and I am a bit edgy, not liking her to be seemingly distressed for those hours.
Any ideas, suggestions?
