I just wanted to let everyone know that the flea drops are not the only products by Hartz that are causing problems. My mother-in-law purchased the Hartz Ear Mite drops for cats and used them in her cats ears. I almost died when I saw what they did to her ears. The drops caused terrible chemical burns not only inside the ear canal, but on the skin in front of the ear. Poor Peaches was in such pain, her ear canal was swollen shut, and terribly inflamed, her ears had become infected, she was digging at her ears so badly, she had gouged wounds on both sides of her head and face. My mother-in-law didn’t realize that the drops had burned her, she thought it was an allergic reaction, but as soon as I saw them, I knew that they were chemical burns, and that they needed to be treated immediately. Peaches is doing better now, her ears are healing slowly, but we don’t know for sure how badly it has affected her hearing.
Please spread the word about the ear mite drops, as well as the flea drops. These chemical products are causing more heartache than anyone can imagine, and must be taken off the market.
