My dog got mange from Hartz products!

The begining of last week I found one flea on my dog, that has never ever ever had fleas. I freaked out and ran to Wal-Mart to buy some flea drops so I could get something done ASAP. I work during normal business hours, so I’m unable to get to the vet during the week. I applied the drops as instructed and thought nothing of it. A couple of days later I started to notice these little bumps on my dogs side, they were filled with puss, gross I know. Then Monday when I arrived home from work, I noticed that since that morning my dog had lost a patch of hair. I called the vet and they prescribed some medicine and I decided to take off of work to take my dog to the vet. I went to the vet and they did some tests and said that my dog has mange! I told them about what I had put on her and they said that is what caused it. I was shocked! I thought only dirty nasty dogs got mange. They said this was an autoimmune disease like from the inside, or something I don’t totally understand that part, but I do understand that this product — Hartz Advanced Care Plus Drops — Did this to my baby! I’m am very unhappy. I called their customer relations dept right when I got home and they requested all kinds of documentation from my vet, which I have requested from my vet, so I’ll hopefully be getting that in the next week. Then I’ll be mailing it to Hartz. If anyone has any more information or knows of any sites I can go and read up about this happening to dogs please e-mail me at [email protected]

If there is some sort of lawsuit I would like to know more about that too, if you can direct me towards a page where I can learn more about it.

Thank you for your time.
