Thank you for quick reply
I appreciate your quick reply. You can be sure, I will report it ASAP tomorrow morning. I feel so guilty everytime I look at her, knowing I caused the problem. Obviously, from reading Internet posts, this is not an uncommon occurrence. What do you use for flea prevention now?

As for exact percentages, Bayer was not forthcoming with any objective adverse event data even though I requested it; they just harped on washing him with dish detergent and rubbing vitamin E on application sites (as if you would find the sites). From scientific journals, hindleg weakness was common in rat studies (blocks sodium channels in nerves). Article also states dysthesias(painful/uncomfortable skin sensations) with all animals (my dog cringed for 4 weeks after I pet him on application sites). Please report it.
