DEAR DR. FOX: One of my wife’s clients had adopted a nice whippet, named Carly, last year. This lady rescues dogs and gets them here to us in Belgium to start a new life. She had about eight dogs at the time, a big field for them to play in, etc.

The dog was given NexGard last year and ended up with seizures. Our dog previously had developed seizures on NexGard Spectra, and Carly’s owner asked how we had treated him. (Holistically.)
