Beware of Hartz Drops for Ear Mites

I am hopeful that my kitten will pull through. I took in a stray kitten, who like all stray kittens, is affected by ear mites. I purchased some Hartz mite drops and she is fighting for her life. I think/hope she will make it. I used HALF the recommended dose and yet the drops still poisoned her. The treating vet told me that he hates all Hartz products and sees this type of poisoning all the time.

Juliet: Another Victim of Hartz

Hello,
First of all, I am much thankful for having a site dedicated to finally bringing down Hartz for the crooks and murderers that they are.

My cat just got sick yesterday. She became shaking one hour after application. Took her to the vet today and she looks like she will be ok.

I bought the medication thinking it was a substitute for Frontline. It was conviently located on the shelf at Target and I thought I was getting a mild version of the drug. Little did I know.

I am amazed that this company has not gotten their butts sued yet for intent to harm and negligence.

If anyone knows of pending class action lawsuits, please call me, Harry at (267) 258-4216 or email harryv@alumni.upenn.edu. If not, I will start my own case.

Thanks

longtime boycotter of Hartz pet products

I have been a boycotter of Hartz products since I was 15. I was the primary care taker of the family dog and therefore it was my responsibility to flea bathe and dip. My perfectly healthy 5 year old sheltie developed cancer and had to be put down. In trying to find out how and why this happened I researched everything I fed to him or put on him and found that it was most likely the flea control products I had used. Even Hartz’s disclaimer states “may cause cancer in some animals”. I also feel that in this day and age there is no need to use the outdated methods of flea control. We do not use dips, medicated shampoos or flea collars. The way to go is frontline, advantix or program. We use it during the late spring/summer months and discontinue when the weather gets cold. We use this in conjunction with natural remedies such as brewers yeast and plenty of excercise, which my vet says will help flea control. I have three dogs, one cat and a big yard. I have not seen a single flea in years.
