To whom it may concern:
With this information, I would like to include this personal letter.
Last night, my husband and I thought we were going to lose a member of our family. This incident has caused us both so much hurt, and we can?t imagine the pain our kitten, Tyson had to go through.
Luckily, Tyson lived through this. If he hadn?t, we would have no choice but to take more action against Hartz. Money would not have been the issue one bit if something happened to our family member. Tyson was a perfectly healthy cat, and was taken to the vet regularly for check-ups. The vet was even surprised to see us, as most people didn?t bother bringing in their animals for regular check-ups. We care for our friend.
Prior to the use of your product, Tyson was not on any medication, etc. His ears were twitching just hours after use of your flea & tick drops for cats and kittens, he just laid there (the playful cat that he is), his eyes were very dilated and at times, his heart was beating very fast. We rushed him to the vet on August 27th, after these problems worsened, after we bathed him as requested by our vet. He underwent a series of medical treatments to remove your product from his bloodstream, which caused harm and he had to have tubes inserted into his precious body. Imagine the agony we all felt, as we had to come face-to-face with reality that his red blood cell count might drop so low, that we might have lost him forever.
For a member of Hartz to stand behind their product and tell me that this medication was Not the cause of Tyson being admitted to the vet is ridiculous, especially when there are countless complaints for the Same Exact problems after use of your product ? and sometimes death. I feel horrible for applying this product to Tyson, but the only ignorance, was that of buying your poison. Do you consider nerve damage an allergic reaction? How about paralysis? Is Death an allergic reaction? Are such a large percent of toxins safe? This company should be ashamed of themselves, and I can?t imagine working in a field where animals die because of a flea & tick product. I wonder how many animals have died using ?Advantage? Shall we compare?
Despite all of this, and because Tyson has recovered, I am requesting that the total amount, as listed on the vet bill be paid in full as soon as possible. It?s so sad that such a small-priced item has cost so many hundreds of dollars, and worst, cost so many families loss of their friends ? for some, it?s their only friends and family members.
In the case that we do not receive full compensation for the enclosed bill, I will not hesitate to file a first class action lawsuit which my husband and I have already discussed. Also, I will have no choice but to go directly to the media with all the information I have on this medicine, along with the newspapers and magazines we have very easy access to. I am kindly asking that our bill be paid to us in full immediately to avoid any more stress on both parties.
