I am questioning the use of Prolate.
It is good that you question this products safety and I am glad you are concerned for your dogs health.
This is why I do not use Prolate and other related Dip products................
Prolate/Lintox-HD is used to control flies, mites, mange and ticks on livestock but is not for use on household pets. Paramite was used to control fleas and ticks on dogs. It was voluntarily taken off the market in 2005 after the Environmental Protection Agency determined its active ingredient was potentially dangerous to animal handlers, groomers and young children, said EPA spokesman Chris Whitley.
Paramite and prolate both contain the same active ingredient, the organophosphate insecticide phosmet. Organophosphates kill insects by disrupting activity in their brains and nervous systems. These neurotoxins can also inflict nasty adverse effects on mammals (like humans) – hence their early use as chemical warfare agents.
Toxic or not – what’s the problem if prolate and paramite both have the same active ingredient? Well… pet products containing phosmet were voluntarily taken off the market back in 2005 after the EPA found they posed an unacceptable risk of dermal toxicity to people who came in contact with treated animals.
I hope this answers your question about Prolate.
