Hartz’ Long History of Apathy

Twenty years ago I used Hartz’ “Once-a-Month Wormer” on my Golden retriever. By the next day he was having seizures and developed ataxia – trouble standing upright. As a physician I knew that the active ingredient in this product sometimes causes neurological side effects in people when used to treat parasites. I phoned Hartz hoping to get some information about what to expect, what treatment might be helpful, etc. They absoutely refused to provide any information or put me through to anyone who might offer any information – instead simply denied that their product could cause any problem whatsoever. I kept trying to explain that as a physician I was well aware that this drug could cause these side effects – but I was completely stonewalled. I was very, very angry and have never trusted this company again. -sb
