EPA: Flea and Tick Products may kill pets

The Environmental Protection Agency is improving the safety measures for flea and tick treatments products after they found a significant increase in side effects for pets, ranging from skin irritation to neurological problems and even deaths. The EPA said they received 44,263 reports of harmful reactions associated with topical flea and tick products in 2008, up from 28,895 in 2007.

The Agency will require manufacturers to improve labeling and require clear markings on boxes to determine which ones need to say more clearly how to use the products and to differentiate between dog and cat products. The EPA also says it will develop more strict testing and evaluation requirements for topical flea and tick treatments.

Veterinarians say the most important thing is to be sure you're buying the proper medication and pay close attention to the directions. The EPA recommends pet owners consult a veterinarian before purchasing any treatment for your cat or dog.

Here are the list of EPA-registered spot-on anti-flea and tick products.
