IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
- The most common side effects (affecting inbetween 1 to 10 animals in 1,000 animals) were vomiting, diarrhoea, lack of energy, decreased appetite, and itching, which generally were short-lived and resolved spontaneously. Because fleas and ticks must start feeding on the dog in order to be killed by the medicine, there may be a risk of transmission of diseases with which they may be infected. Accidental ingestion of afoxolaner can be harmful to children. To avoid accidental ingestion administer the chewable to the dog immediately after removal from the package. Keep out of reach of children. People handling the medicine should wash hands after ahandling the product.
