First time Certifect user

We have 2 English Bulldogs (3 year old female & 8 year old male) & a 14 year old Alaskan Malamute. We recently had a tick outbreak because of wet weather & feral cats. I am not in favor of any of the topical tick medications, but in the past we have used one other...with little success. But this tick outbreak was real bad, so I went to a local vet and was recommended Certifect as the 'perfect' cure. We applied it to all 3, immediately, my girl was itching and rubbing herself everywhere. She is a nutjob anyways (always active and running around) so I didn't take it too seriously. Within 2 hours our boy, Diesel (the reason I breathe...) crawled on my husband's lap and started shaking and was disoriented. Thank goodness, my husband has the clear head and he immediately put him into the tub washing him down. Our girl quickly followed, and we finally put out 140 lb Malamute into our shower (walk in) and washed him too. I went on line and found all these letters from other owners with similar signs. My neighbor has 3 Bullies and I called her and warned her about this too. Now we will just keep an eye out for the other mentioned symptoms. Never again...I have no idea where to turn from here...

I just wanted to thank The Horse Forum, and the owners who posted earlier on these side effects. I posted a longer letter on what happened to my 2 English Bullies and Malamute earlier today. Not good, but hopefully we caught this before side effects get worse.
