I took my 17 mo old Papillion to Banfield Vet on 3/3/11, he was in good health, per the documentation I have. All he needed was a Rabies shot. He got his Rabie shot, but also other shots he did not need.
The sold me Worm Shield for a Heart worm preventative, he weighs no more than 10 lbs. He was up-to-date on all of his other shots. I took the documentation from the vets and vet tech (who is the breeder) and I was informed because he puppy shots were not administered by a Vet they could not accept them. So they gave him Bordetella, Distemper/Parvo/DAPP and Rabies. I was also told I have to bring him back for a booster shot in 3 weeks. I had no problem with the Bordetella, as he does go to a groomer at Petsmart and I knew that was for Kennel Cough.
On 3/17/11 I did take him back to get his booster Distemper/Parvo/DAPP like I was asked to do. The next day 3/18/11 I gave him his Heartworm Pill,(wormshield) for up to 25 lbs. Within 15 mins he was dead.
It has been researched that Under NO situation, or any animal should be give any Ivermectin product for at least 2 weeks after the last vaccine.
MSU states that because he was administered that ingredient is why he died.
I had read the instructions thoroughly and there is no place that it is or was stated that there should be a waiting period from vaccines to taking this product. The Vet didn't even say anything when she gave me the tablets. There is no warning on this product, nor would I have known about this except for the research that was done to confirm the death.
