FDA: Letter of WARNING to Bayer
The FDA has issued a warning against Bayer Health Care about
potentially misleading advertisements for its Advantage Multi-brand
flea and heartworm medication for cats and dogs. The June letter
states that the TV advertisement produced by Bayer makes the drug seem safer than it actually is.
The TV ad “Field Trip” fails to adequately communicate the risks
associated with Advantage Multi™ For Dogs. Specifically, while the TV ad mentions that in avermectin sensitive dogs more severe adverse effects may be seen, the possibility of coma and death, which is stated in the boxed warning, is not mentioned, thereby minimizing these risks We’ve also posted the full warning letter.
