My 6 lb Pomeranian got fleas last week. I have a wellness plan at Banfield Pet Hospital so I brought him in.
I told them my fears about anti-flea medication and the toxicity of it, and they suggested their product First Shield Trio and said it was nontoxic. I was an *** and decided to trust them without looking up the reviews first. He was fine the first day that I put it on him, but then the next day he became completely restless, was walking with his behind contorted to the side, itching all over the place, barking NONstop unless I held him, biting me, his temperature is very hot, and he twitches uncontrollably especially when he FINALLY rests... his head and hind leg spaz up as if he is having a seizure when he tries to sleep.
I gave him a good scrub down in the bath, brought him back to Banfield (who told me he was "okay"), and put him on Benadryl (which isn't helping). It has been 3 days and no improvement. My dog is miserable, it is CLEAR that this is filled with neurotoxins and other ***.
I will never trust Banfield with medicine again, and I hope First Shield Trio gets banned. I have never seen so many horrible reviews about a product before.
