Problems with Hartz flea collars

I just received this e-mail from Darah. I have never used Hartz flea collars on our animals. If anyone has any information, please contact me or Darah.

Within 48 hours of putting one on my cat, she lost all the hair around her neck and
now has a raw, weeping wound. I know the flea drops by Hartz are a problem, but I
think there may be another problem with the collars. Please feel free to email at
any time.

  1. I bathed my Pomeranian in Hartz flea shampoo last night. Within minutes of drying her, she started falling down and shaking her head from right to left. After a few minutes she could not hold her head up. I called the Vet and he told me to take the dog in the shower and wash her thoroughly with Dawn Dish washing liquid multiple times and give her Karo Syrup. I had to force feed her the syrup as she would not drink it. (Karo syrup is recommended for Pomeranians anyway. She usually loves the stuff. Gets excited when she sees me take the bottle out of the cabinet.) She slept on my chest all night. Just laid there shaking. I thought about taking her to the vet, but after talking with him, I don’t think he could have done any more than I had already done. I didn’t think she would make it through the night. She is much better this morning. I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING ELSE FROM HARTZ!! THEIR PRODUCTS SHOULD BE BANNED WORLDWIDE!!

  2. We bought 3 flea collars for my 3 cats with in hours of putting on the flea collar on my one cat all her hair was gone around her neck and was raw. I am taking them off all my animals and contacting the company, These products should be banned if they are not safe for your animals. I am so upset and Pissed OFF that my animal has to go through this because of the negligence of the company selling a product that claims it is safe for your animal
