My sons cat, DugOut, had to be put to sleep Monday. We used “Hartz Advanced Care Flea & Tick Drops Plus +” last week, he had some twitching but we assumed it was the fleas bothering him, not the chemicals. By Sunday he stopped eating, all he would do was sleep. We would carry him to his water bowl and he would drink, but, immediatly stumble into his litter box to relieve himself. We ran him to the vet’s first thing Monday morning, he had blood in his saliva, he had gone into complete renal failure, his body temerature had dropped below normal and the Vet said there was little that they could do to improve his life. The vet agreed with me that the best thing to do was to put him to sleep.
I wasn’t even aware of the Hartz problems until I started looking for it specifically on the web. I followed directions for use on the package, applied it at the base of Dugout’s head. Obviously the EPA forced repackaging has not made this product safer.
I will never buy another Hartz product.
