What I didn't mention was that my vet gave him a shot of morphine, put him on a steroid, muscle relaxants and pain medication. None of these helped. At the animal hospital, they also gave him a powerful slow acting morphine derivative and sedative. Finally, they admitted him and put him on a morphine drip. None of this helped! This is why we made our decision. I can't tell you how painful it is to know that a solution as simple as a bath and "weathering the storm" may have saved his life. I'm not sure where all this will lead, but I am just now starting to figure out what happened and what I should do next. thanks for the kind words.
You are welcome! Much love <3

<quoted text>I SAID YOU ALL SOUND LIKE DUMB ASSES!!! If the product "doesn't work" or if your having an "allergy" call the manufacture and make them pay for treatment!!! CANT YOU READ A FUCKING BOX!?!?!?!!! And I am anything BUT insensitive honey just because your so quick to blame the "new product" DOESNOT mean that's what's causing the problem. Not a single one of my dogs (Presa canario, Great Dane, pitbull, or pointer) have had a reaction. My friends dogs (yorkie, schnauzer, shi tzu ect) have had a single reaction EVER. I bet 9 out if 10 of you people probably got shots done at the sane time this stuff was applied. Did you ever stop to think that maybe your pet was experiencing a vaccine reaction?? UHHH PROBABLY NOT!! GET YOUR HEADS OUT YOUR ASSES AND PAY ATTENTION.
You are indeedly a degenerate.

I moved from one side of the country to the other, so needed a new vet. My sister had recently used VCA and was pleased, I knew of them from my prior location, so changed to a VCA vet. He had prescribed SimpleGuard 3 for her dachshunds and recommended the same for my 85 lb. lab because ticks are such a problem in this area. I finished the Advantix that I had been using, then switched to SimpleGuard. I did not connect my dog's sudden bouts of illness to SimpleGuard 3 at first. I blamed moving 3,000 miles, new lab playmates, change of climate and new dog food for his bouts of diarrhea and difficulty moving. It went away in about 5 days, When the "illness" was repeated, I began to remove the variables, and noted that each bout of illness was becoming more acute--difficulty breathing, stumbling on stairs, serious separation anxiety, lots of sleeping and no play. Then came no appetite--he's a lab! I checked dog foods and switched to a top rated one, grain free. Four days ago he got his 4th dose of SimpleGuard 3. He became nearly unable to walk; stairs were impossible. No eating. Huge drinking and constant rubbing against furniture. I went online and found this site. Now I know, and we have an appointment with the vet where a MOST serious discussion will take place. Yes, I had checked the box for warnings previously. Vethical has a HUGE problem even if it isn't with every dog. This needs to stop.

I have it to 3 dogs twice now. First time only one dog had itching issues.
This last time (2days ago) two are itchy and panting. The third dog was fine both times.
Never had the reactions from frontline.

I used this product on my 2 dogs, one 12 lbs and the other 15 lbs. it worked great. I hope all are placing the product between the shoulder blades where the pet cannot lick it off! Ingesting any topical flea medication will make them extremely ill.

Frontline has quit working for me too. Your explanation would explain why my dog never gets comfort from fleas. Frontline used to work great. I'm looking for something new.
My Vet just gave me SimpleGuard 3. I aplied it about an hor ago, then went on line and read the posts!! I am watching both dogs carefully. Will post if something happens.
Works great!! I recently posted the results of using this product. Again, I hope you are placing the product In-between the shoulder blades so your pet cannot reach it and lick it off! If they ingest it, it can be devastating! My friend placed it in the middle of the back. Her dog licked it and became extremely ill.

My poor dog had a HORRIBLE experience Friday night & after reading these comments as well as all of the negative reviews regarding this product online, I am convinced that it was a result of his SimpleGuard 3 application that he received that afternoon. It was the first time we were using this product. Shortly after applying the product, we got in the car for an hour road trip to my brothers house. Not long into the drive, he started panting heavily. He is a Frenchie, so he is prone to some breathing issues. Normally, after getting a little AC & some cold water, his breathing regulates. However, it progressively got worse & worse. We were headed to the beach after stopping at my brothers & had to stop at an emergency vet along the way. Luckily we found one JUST in time. His tongue was purple & he was foaming out of his nostrils& had a temp of nearly 105! He spent the night in the ER at the vet in an oxygen chamber & was receiving sedatives to attempt to reduce the anxiety caused by not being able to breathe as well as chilled IV fluids. They almost had to put a trache(sp?) in his throat because his airway was so swollen. After reading the above warnings & all of the scathing reviews of this product, I shared the info with the vet who ordered that he immediately be given a bath. After that, he started to progress. I will NEVER use this product again & will tell everyone I know with a dog not too either! It is NOT worth the risk!

Mimi, i am so sorry you had to go through this like we did. The crazy thing is that this "poison" does NOT list any possible side effects/or anything for that matter on the box, etc.

I wish we saw this sooner. A little less than two weeks after my dog was given this medication for the first time, we heard him yelp as his hind legs collapsed. When my father picked him up, he urinated himself. He seemed to somewhat recover, although he was not walking right and restless. He was 17 year old so we chalked it up to his age and decided to wait a few days and then talk to the vet about what we should do. He died the next day. We later heard about these horrible side effects and it all seemed to make sense. I understand my little guy was pretty old, but he was still a spunky critter who really impressed the doctors during his bi-annual geriatric check-ups. But I know in my gut what happened was the result of this medication. Please beware!!! There is no harm in just avoiding this medication when other, effective medications are available.

What I've been using is Parastar Plus on my dogs for a few years now, it's the best there is, better than frontline and the same cost or even a little cheaper, and it works great,kills within an hour and had no reactions. Haven't heard anyone with problems with this product! So i recommend this product for all dogs owners! Parastar Plus for dogs!

Well, it's the 3rd month using SimpleGuard 3. First time I haven't battled fleas when it was close to the time for application. I am very happy with the product. I am so sorry for others who have had such horrible experiences.

Moments after I applied Simple Guard 3 (given by my vet), my dog (golden retriever puppy 4 months) acted very strangely, wouldn't go to her bed, paced, whined. She is very routine like, goes to her bed every night with no fuss, so I knew something was wrong. I bathed her. She's still not sleeping in her normal spot but I'm hoping the bath helped. I think this may be a bad product, especially since so many negative reviews.

I just gave my 11lb 10yr old yorkie, Kady, first dose of simpleguard3 2 hrs ago. She is acting strangely for her. At first she looked stricken and shocked..usually a lap dog, she doesnt want anything to do with me now. Hiding under the bed. Not barking when someone comes to the door...(did I mention she's a yorkie?!?) Shes not itching or breathing funny, but something is very wrong..I just googled and found your posts...thank you!!! Just bathed her good and gave her 1/2benadryl. Maybe it wouldnt have gotten any worse than this, but dont want to take the chance. Back to Frontline for me.

I used Simple Guard 3 yesterday and today my two 6 pound 1 year old toy poodles began to run and bite their backs. They dashed from one place to another and could not relax. When they started to pant I called the vet. He told me to wash off the chemical with Dawn dish detergent and then the vet gave them injections of Benadryl. One dog seems to be better. The other one has been hiding in his crate. The vet said dogs are reacting to the Pyriproxyfen.

I gave my 5 lbs yorkie Simple Guard 3 earlier this morning and he also began to act strange. I took him outside and he act like he could not go up the step. When he is in the house he just stand in one place. I Google this produce side effect and found this site. I bath him with dawn and have him about a 1/4 tablet of Benadryl. I will watch him tonight and if he is still acting strange will call the vet.

Let's see, the VCA makes this product and pushes it through their vet offices that are expensive to be seen. Then the animal gets sick and needs vet attention at an additional cost....see the pattern sheeple?
