This is a crosspost from my GD board

This was posted on another all breed board, and thought it warranted sharing....

This is a new product designed to be a more effective product than other flea/tick treatments that was just released this year. It is available thru a vet and not currently on-line. I got ProMeris this week for my 7 dogs (6 Huskies & 1 Golden-Airedale) , and the
results were debilitating for nearly all of them-including me. Since my incident this week, my vet has pulled it from distribution and alerted the manufacturer, Fort Dodge.

Here are my results: Within less than 2 hours after applying, 4 of my dogs had vomited from 2-4 times, 3 were disoriented and stumbling, 1 was dragging his back leg, 1 was salivating. I had very similar symptoms like an allergic reaction-my lips were swollen, eyes very red, mucous membranes such as eyes, nose, and mouth were stinging. I was very disoriented- dizzy equilibrium and not able to drive. To make this
a short story-all 7 of my dogs were admitted to the hospital for
veterinarian care, and 3 of them remained for care, IV fluids and
observation for 24 hours. I was in the emergency room. I'm home now and so are the dogs. We're all feeling much better. Vet bills were over $2,500 and Fort Dodge is paying for these. Not only can the product cause this reaction, it has a highly noxious odor that permeated the house and is just starting to dissipate after 3 days.


**I am not able to verify if this is true or not, but the source is credible so please just keep an eye out for symptoms if you use this product.

Just cross post it as much as possible and send it to your friends and families that have pets.

I ran a check on it on Snopes.com and it is undetermined on whether it is true or not? I am going to mention it to my vet and see what he thinks the next time I am there. It looks to me that if Snopes couldnt claim it to be false then it is worth putting a warning out there for it just in case

Well a friend of mine responded to me and said that she spoke to her vet about it and this is what he said "he has sent every single one he had in stock back to the company. he distributed about 30 packs and had so many compaints he started looking into it. luckily he only had one mild adverse reaction but the people were so unhappy about the odor and that it was not working. he found out from another drug rep that the promeris contains the same ingredients used to treat demodectod mange".
She couldnt remember the name of the chemical except is starts with an A she thought? She also told me that she had a dog with demodex years ago and she remembered using that product and how much she had to dilute it. well apparently the diluation in the promeris is not as much as the product is supposed to be diluted when using it to treat mange.

With this said the reactions people are seeing makes sense!
