    Recently on Facebook an acquaintence mentioned her dog was having seizures, she had greened her lifestyle and the dog was on Revolution to kill heartworms microfilaria, intestinal worms and fleas.

I mentioned that the active ingredient is Selamectin, a manmade synthetic drug slightly similiar to a relatively safe Ivermectin that is a neurological poison.Her reply...

Today on the anniversary of Gilby being dumped in a kill shelter I am thinking about the type of person who does that. Who do you think that type of person is? A careless heartless creep, who throws dogs away like dirty kleenex?Sometimes, butmost likely that person is your next door neighbor... Your next door neighbor, your co-worker, your yoga instructor.
