I put First Shield Trio on my 13-year-old Standard Poodle for the first time last night, and this morning (about 12 hours later) she started acting EXTREMELY distraught. I did not know what was wrong with her, other than the fact that I thought she was afraid because it looked as if it was going to storm outside (which frightens her.) She was stumbling around running into things, jumping on my furniture, she couldn't relax & didn't want to lay down...I would get her to lay down for a minute or two & then she would suddenly jump up & run around like she was "drunk!" She also bit me when I tried to get her to lay down the first time, & she has NEVER bit me before!!!
By calling the Vet & the manufacturer company, I found that her skin was itching & burning, therefore driving her crazy as she didn't know what it was or what to do. So I gave her a bath & washed her with Dawn dishwashing soap. She seemed pleasant while she was in the tub, & now she's still not back to her usual self, but she's a little better & less jumpy than she was, just keeps pacing a little still. Apparently the chemical Permethrin in the medicine is actually TOXIC, so why would they put it in something that goes directly on your animal's skin!?!?
They need to STOP selling this ASAP!!!
*If your pet gets a reaction to this, immediately give them a bath with Dawn dishwashing soap!
