Part of the Puppy Wellness Plan we purchased for lab puppy included FirstShield Trio flea/tick and mosquito prevention treatment.
The first time I used it on him he was lethargic and vomited up
what appeared to be bile (if he were human that's what I would have called it) but sadly it didn't click to link it to the medicine.
The second time I applied it the same thing happened. This time I looked it
up online and discovered that it was making dogs sick, burning their skin,
and that many have died. There's a lawsuit against the manufacturer but Banfield continues to dispense it ~ since they have an exclusive contract with the company that makes sense. (I guess)
We took 2 applications back to Banfield, explained that it was making my dog sick and asked if they had a different one we could use...we were told, "no, our vets voted on that one and that's all we use" if we wanted something else we needed to purchase it from Petsmart or elsewhere.
She was aware of the horrific side effects but - oh well, too bad, so sad!
Before you use this clinic read the reviews online about this company -the nightmares and heartaches people all over America have suffered at the hands of these people. Sadly, I didn't educate myself first. Not sure why they're still in business but they
won't be getting any further business from us.

Reason of review: Poor customer service.
