Nexgard (flea & tick treatment) should be removed from the market WITHOUT DELAY!!!!

This petition had 6,359 supporters

Ever since the inception of the controversial tick and flea "remedy" Nexgard, controversy around this product has not stopped increasing.

Nexgard is supposed to protect our pets by killing the pests that invade the lives of animals. At least that part of the promise holds true: Nexgard is deadly to ticks and fleas...

If it ended there, and the quality of our pets' lives were improved by it, Nexgard would have been welcomed with  open arms... but it doesn't end with killing the pests; numerous side effects have been experienced by many beloved pets and reported by their owners, including severe gastritis, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, seizures and more. Many dogs died after having ingested this drug.

In spite of numerous calls to Merial and the FDA, our problem seems to be ignored. And now, after the sad passing of a beautiful Cavalier Prince Charles Spaniel following being administered a dose of Nexgard, I feel that it is time to take action. Please read the posts on this public Facebook group: and then decide for yourself. And then please do the right thing by signing this petition. We need this drug to be withdrawn from the veterinary scene with immediate effect until it can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that these deaths were not caused by it!

Another drug, Bravecto, contains the same active ingredient (Fluralaner) as Nexgard and the same adverse side effects were reported for it. Watching the following video will give you an idea of exactly how serious this is:
