As background, last spring following a significant increase in incident reports associated with pet spot-on products in 2008, EPA received additional information from the pet spot-on pesticide registrants and conducted an intensive evaluation of those incidents and products. During this Webcast, EPA will present an overview of its evaluation of these products and its plans to further protect pets. The public will have an opportunity to submit questions and the EPA presenters will address as many as time allows.
