I was very lucky with my Hartz experience. Although, at the time, I had no idea. I noticed my two 10 month old kitties were scratching often, and I noticed some fleas. Fearing an outbreak, I bought the Hartz medicine thinking I’d wipe it out before it got out of hand.
I applied it to one of my cats. It got too low on his back, and for fear of him licking it, I washed him off immediately. I don’t know why I didn’t think about the cats licking each other, but I didn’t. About a week later, I noticed a big dry bump of skin on my cat’s back. That is when I started to look up info about Hartz.
I was shocked at what I found and how close I was to hurting my kitties. I was very upset and very grateful at the same time. I have written PETA on this matter. They fight tooth and nail for animal rights, and I think that some organization like that will need to get involved for these products to stop being made.
