    Default Peeing out of control from tick collar!?! Is that possible or a coincident?

    About 3-4 hours ago I put a Virbac tick collar on Joey and about an hour ago I noticed she pees out of control Little drops are dripping when she walks and if she sits there is a puddle where she sat I'm so sad, I really don't need more problems right now and poor Joey Is it possible that the tick collar caused this? or is it just a coincident and she's got an UTI?

    I rinsed her off with water and took the collar off just in case...

    We just took Bennie to the vet yesterday cos he had an allergic reaction, Boeboe was at the vet about a month ago due to problems with her shoulder tendon and just a couple of weeks before that Lucky had to have a cherry eye operation. And end of December Boeboe had Hip Dysplasia surgery... I just need a break

    Oh man…
    I've never tried those types of collars on my dogs, but I did on my cat's once and all the hair around their necks came off!!! I had to remove them and use Frontline… I'm allergic to perfume, and obviously those collars have a smell… it could be a reaction to that as well. I would call the vet and see what he says… I'm thinking it definitely is possible. I'm so sorry you have been thru the ringer w/the vets lately

    Thanks Tracey<3 I've used that Frontline liquid you put in the neck on Joey before and didn't have any issues then... the vet recommended the collar cos it lasts up to 3 months and we have crazy much ticks around here this time of the year I hope she will get better now when it's off... I'll call the vet tomorrow and see what they say. It has a very strong mint smell, the whole house stinks like toothpaste At least Bennie is doing good again, I'm very thankful about that

    The last time we used collars was on our Pugs and the same thing happened with the hair falling out, stopped them real quick. I would call the vet too, just to be safe. It's good to hear Bennie's feeling better.

    @Petra Sorry to hear this . I have never used this type of collar, either. It is certainly a possibility. If the peeing doesn't stop by tomorrow,better check with the vet. Have you ever tried the diatomaceous earth (food grade)? You can sprinkle it on the ground, on your dogs on your floor, It will kill fleas and ticks but it is not a chemical.

    We have never used collars or Frontline. Several friends of mine have had skin reactions from Frontline. We don't do anything about fleas because we use Sentinel for heart worms and it works on fleas too. Hope your baby gets better.

    No I've never tried it... I'm not even sure where to look for it, but I'll definitely see if I can find it somewhere thank you



    It seem like Joey is doing better already but I don't want to say to much... she might just not have more to pee out... I just cuddled her goodnight as it's late here already, she seemed happy and acted normal so we'll see tomorrow if she still has the same problem. I haven't noticed anything different with the others luckily but I'll keep an eye on them so they're not losing hair or anything

    Thanks to everyone for making me feel a lill better

    I suppose its possible since most of these pesticides are neurological toxins. Possibility its causing an imbalance that is making her have less control with the urination. Never know.

    I'm pretty sure it was the Virbac tick collar that made Joey not being able to hold her bladder, she got better only a couple of hours after I took it off and today she doesn't have any issues I'm so relieved I just wanted to let the ones reading this know in case someone else will have the same problem.

    I'm unsure how to handle the situation now with Boeboe and Bennie I took it off them all yesterday but I put it on them again this morning (except for Joey)... There are really tons of ticks around here now and I'm scared they'll get sick from the bites Since I'm home all the time I feel ok letting them wear it while I'm home... what I'm stressing about now is if it's bad to keep taking it off and on??? I realize it might not have the same effect... but can it be bad for them in any other way?

    @Petra Wouldn't it be nice if things just went easily? Sometimes I envy people who don't like animals-they must have an easier life.(But I've always thought them selfish...)
    anyway-everyone reacts differently to all meds, and chemicals. If the other dogs have no reactions to them, and it doesn't affect Joey(from the others being around her) I would do as you are doing. I would think that wearing the collar most of the time would be better than not at all. Since you are home with them-you can keep track of any unusual symptoms. It's a case of deciding which choice is worse-the collars or the ticks. We may all have nervous breakdowns....won't we be lucky if we all wind up in the same nuthouse??!!!! Feedstores that sell animal(horse,etc) feeds in the U.S. have D.Earth. Perhaps they do in S.A...... You are not alone-there is always some kind of disaster here in my house,too. Can't win for losing!
