Every week

I work at a vet hospital on emergency hours. At least once a week I get a call from a frantic pet owner, saying that they applied Hartz flea products to their animal, and the animal(most of the time feline) is now twitching and seizuring. I go through the normal routine of telling them to bathe their animal and bring it in for further treatment. The outcome of the situation depends on how early the problem is cought. Most make it through the hours of twitching and seizuring with the proper treatment, but there are some that don’t. It is always very dificult explaining to a grievig owner that the very product they gave their animal to help it has caused such suffering and sometimes death. My recomendation is to never use otc flea prevention. It may be less expensive, but you may end up paying a higher price in the end. Sincerly Concerned, Holly
