Certifect for Dogs 58 58
Very Toxic To My Dog My advice is to NOT USE this product. It was very toxic to my dog, why take the chance with your pets health. Have used Frontline Plus for years, decided to try this new on the market product, BIG MISTAKE. I gave this to my 9mnth old puppy and my 10yr old Akita/Chow mix on Monday afternoon. By early am on Tues, my Akita/Chow mix had a possible seizure and was very lethargic and somewhat unresponsive. She was drooling and had had an accident in the house, which never happens. She also was having trouble moving her back legs. Took her to the vet, she received support treatment and 2 IV solutions. It has been 14 hours since her vet treatment and she is still trying to recover. My 9mnth old is doing ok, but I will not use this on him ever again. There should be a huge warning with this product !!! if you use this, have some Dawn dish liquid handy in case you need to wash it off fast, this could save your dogs life. Back to Frontline for me. I seriously hope they take this product off the market. 06/13/2013
Kills Ticks - No Side Effects I have two German Wirehair Pointers, one 75 lbs. the other 55 lbs. This year in Iowa ticks are extremely numerous and Frontline was not helping. My Vet recommended Certifect. The clinic can not keep up with the demand and they are often out of stock. Providing Certifect to dogs of all sizes and breeds they have not had a complaint regarding side effects, not one. I administered Certifect on both dogs, with no adverse affects, they act just as energetic as they always do. There is an odor when first applied, which I did not find offensive and it went away when it dried. Most importantly we are now finding very few ticks on our dogs and the ones we do find are dead. It works for tick control, I recommend it.. 06/09/2013
The ONLY thing that has worked for my dogs I have a lab that has had severe tick problems.. would try every medication, sprays, dips, de-ticking, bombs.. you name it and nothing worked.. until Certifect. This medication is the ONLY thing in over a year that has completely stopped his tick infestation. Yes is smells bad, yes the dog gets a little lethargic (not too much, just walks slow on walks) and I have noticed a little itching on his part. But it sure beats the possibility of lyme disease or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever which could affect both dogs and humans in the household. I would STRONGLY recommend this product if you are having issues with ticks. 06/08/2013
BEWARE!! this stuff is horrible! not only does it smell terrible but it made my poor dog so sick just a few hours after application, she couldnt even stand on her own. very lethargic, loopy..etc I will never put this stuff on my dog again. 06/03/2013
effective product - bad side effects we've now been through 3 cycles with our two 80 pound labs. The lethargy/stoned effect last 2-3 days, followed by some increased itchiness. I was reading some reviews where people thought that fleas were causing itchiness... it is a side effect..... i'm on the fence... it is the best tick product out there, but will probably go back to advantix for the lack of side effects. The side effects seem to have no rhyme or reason looking at other reviews but it seems big dogs have it worse. 06/02/2013

Talk to other pet lovers about this product.
after giving certifect to our boston terrier, she started with watery eyes and lots of dooling. The next day ( today ) she isnt jumpinging and running around but just wants loving and laying around. what is wrong?
Answer:¬†Your pet has been overdosed with Amitraz, one of the active ingredients used in Certifect. Please talk with your Vet about these side effects as death can be a result of these adverse reactions. I highly recommend reading more about side effects and allergic reactions to Amitraz.
Answer:¬†The #1 side effect from certifect is lethargy. My dog also experienced this. I was told from my vet to disregard this symptom unless he is lethargic for more than 48 hours after application.
But to be honest, I threw mine out and decided not to subject my dog to those chemicals again!
Answer:¬†My dog, a german shepard mix, was also very lethargic the next day and was drooling. The box insert does say they can be lethargic after application. I think the strong smell of the product may be causing the watery eyes. My dog snapped out of it about 48 hours later, but I am not going to use it on him again.
Answer:¬†Don't give her any more. I thought my Collie was terminally ill, but tests and bloodwork couldn't find anything wrong. Call your vet and see what they think would work well. I am calling mine tomorrow and sharing what I have read in the review section.
Answer:¬†A little oil did get on the back cushion of the sofa but, I noticed it fairly quick and ran a little warm water and dish soap on a rag and wiped it right off with no permanent staining.
Answer:¬†CERTIFECT kills ticks in 18 hours, whereas the current standard for tick-killing efficacy is 24-48 hours. It is also the only topical product that detaches ticks. Yes, so I would discontinue using the Preventic collar if you are going to use Certifect.
Our dog has never had a tick problem, but with the mild winter here in Texas, I believe the tick population has increased in our area. We use Advantage II regularly but I wanted to switch to Advantix in order to kill all the pests/larvae, but one of the workers at Petco gave me the wrong box and I didn't notice until I was already home. I stopped by the family vet today and she gave me a month's dose of Certifect but I had just recently given Lily another dose of Advantage just last week. I gave her a flea/tick bath instead today because I wanted to know if it was safe to use both products at the same time and I didn't want to use the Certifect in case it mixed badly with the Advantage. How long should I wait until I can use it?
Answer:¬†wouldn't recommnd using 2 products at same time unlesss vet approves.
Answer:¬†My vet told me to wait 2-3 weeks after applying any other toplical. However, its always best to ask your vet who knows your pet.
