Welcome to Chateau Animal Hospital

Braselton based Chateau Animal Hospital excels in the science of Veterinary medicine and was founded in 2003.

Bravecto Safety Statement:
Before I comment directly about the current sensationalized news broadcast, I would like to clarify a common misconception. Specifically, there is a difference between safety and “risk free.” I would like to share a personal experience. In July of 2013, I had a life threatening reaction to a common antibiotic. I spent weeks in three separate hospitals. The antibiotic that I reacted to is a common antibiotic that has been used for decades in both Human and Veterinary Medicine. Unfortunately, I am the rare exception and experienced a serious adverse event to this normally safe drug. Consequently, I have a strong personal interest in the safety of the medications that I dispense. No medication is fully risk free. There will always be an unpredictable patient population that is sensitive to a particular medication. Currently, Bravecto has a 0.01% severe reaction rate or 1 patient in 10,000 will experience a serious adverse event. Bravecto’s side effect profile is similar to other anti-parasitic medications on the market. The recent news report states that there “Is no proof but plenty of blame.” However, the news reporter features suffering pet owners to the dismay of all pet lovers. The reporter fails to inform the viewers properly regarding FDA reports. Nonetheless, the FDA captures any and all complaints of possible side effects related to medication. No physical or toxicology evidence has to be provided to submit a concern to the FDA. No testing or post mortem examination has to be provided. Unlike human deaths, pet owners are not required to have a necropsy performed (pet autopsy). Consequently, potentially any cause of death could be attributed to any medication without issuance of evidence to support the claim. My best advice is for all pet owners to research their personal and pet medications. There will find that ALL medications are associated with side effects and severe adverse events. My wife, a Clinical Pharmacist almost lost her husband to a drug reaction, and I am very empathetic to those pet owners. We need to continue to study every medication that is dispensed and change or remove those that are found to be dangerous. We will never find a medication that has a risk factor of zero. At Chateau Animal Hospital we stand behind the medications we dispense. If any client wishes to return any product at any time for a refund, please do so. I only hope that our clients will make their decisions based on provable scientific evidence, and not local media driven ratings.
