    There are several I think, (my daughter-in-Law-to-be is a vet) ...

    But in the UK, Bravecto Chewable Tablets is popular, it contains the active substance Fluralaner; a new extoparasticide belonging to the isoxazolina group, if you want to check the chemicals ...

    Nexgard Chewable Tablets contain an ingredient called Afoxolaner, which works by over-stimulating the nervous system of the flea and killing them before they have a chance to lay eggs...

    Both are prescription only meds ...

    It seems there are a fair alternatives to the hard stuff then. All good to know for next time. I'm very careful what I give Skye, Boarder collies have temperamental digestive systems at the best of times. One false step and poo bags galor. Thanks for everyone's suggestions on this, me and Skye appreciate it.

    Sadly, I think that one is a no no for collie types.

    Bravecto sounds familiar but I cant find the paperwork right now, but i seem to recall about a year ago they changed it to a different brand but said it was the same stuff.
    Worth noting however that our collie doesn't have any history of digestive sensitivities or any other allergies etc

    It does say it can affect collies but you can’t tell with ours.
    He’s so thick

    Skye was a rescue dog, we were told when we had her that she had a delicate stomach and to be prepared for it and they were right. I know a few people with Boader Collies now, it's amazing how you get to meet people when you walk a dog. It seems about 1 in five isn't afflicted by the dodgy stomach. They are known to have seizures as well, luckily, so far we haven't experienced that. I had another bad night with her last night, she is really struggling to walk or lay down, I had to lift her onto the sofa at 3am so she could sleep. I've put a plastic cone around her head to stop her biting herself, although that problem as lessened.

    How terrible for the poor animal. Hopefully, the reaction is now got beyond the worst and she is starting to recover. I know it costs money but I would be tempted to have another word with your vet to see if the way she is now is what they had expected or does she need more help. :(
    I am fortunate as I know the long history of both of mine and I know that in the line breeding of one of them there has been a severe reaction to Milbemax so I will not use that for worming - I keep a check on their worm 'situation' by using the Wormcount Laboratories reports very six months. When we go over to France I take my own doses of Drontal and will not let the French vets use anything else.
    As 'they' say, 'a dog is for life' and ownership is an on-going responsibility.:)

    Skye is back to her old self, well almost. The plastic cone I fitted over her head to stop her biting herself has been removed but whilst she was wearing it she developed a funny walk cos her feet kept hitting it. She is still walking as if the cone is still on, it looks like she is trying to step over something with each step.

    Skye is a canine escapologist. She can remove the most secure muzzle in seconds. I knew she was really poorly when she hardly tried getting the cone off until yesterday. It's quite a good one, it has a padded collar with Velcro fastening and a set of press studs so it can fit different size dog, but the open end is very wide hence her bashing her feet on the edge of it. I did look at those thick padded collars, but she prefers to lay on her side to sleep and I though her head would flop over the edge of it.

    I am delighted to hear that Skye is well on the road to a complete recovery. 'Daddy' will think twice before 'poisoning' her again, I'm sure.:)

    Hi Col,
    I hope that your dog is better, there are loads of reports on t'interweb about dogs having this kind of reaction to flea treatments, sometimes up to and including death.
    I daren't use them on my antique lurcher ( 16 last month).
    We are going the natural/ homeopathic route which is working, just not so fast.
    I really feel for you because you were trying to help your dog and it turned out badly. Please let me know if she's ok.
