Allergic reaction

My name is Rick and i’m writing you this letter to let you know that my dog Zima had an allergic reaction to Hartz Flea and Tick Drops and had to be brought to Petsmart {Banfield Pet Hospital}.
I applied the medicine on July 23rd,2004, everything seemed to be okay, except that she was scratching alot, like she could not get rid of the fleas. I also noticed that she was not eating alot but i thought it was because she is part Husky and that it was summer and thought it was just the heat.
On August 23, 2004 I applied the second applicator tube on my dog Zima as written, and within the same day I started seeing a big difference in her behavior. Zima started whining, hiding under or hiding behind tables, couches,etc. Like she was scared of something. She would not eat or drink and when she moved about it was like slow motion and seemed to be very taxing on her breathing.
I called Hartz and told them what was going on and the operator told me to wash her 3 times in a row using Palmolive dish soap and then towel dry her. She was nice but she also told me if Zima was still acting weird to take her to the vet.
On August 25, 2004 i gave my dog a bath according to instructions from the operator from Hartz. Well to say Zima’s behavior did not change and seemed to get worse.
On August 28, 2004 I brought Zima to the vet and he checked her out and said that she has an allergic reaction to Hartz Flea and Tick Drops and gave her a few shots to relieve her of her reaction problem.
Well she is fine now but i am still arguing with Hartz about my vet bill that i am trying to get reimbursed for, 82.00, but its like i am trying to get $800.00 or $8000.00 from them because it ain’t happening.
They wanted a letter from my vet, did that. Now they want me to get a toxicity test from the A.S.P.C.A Animal Poison or something like that and they would pay the consultation fee
I just got tht letter on January 3rd, 2005.
HELLO MY DOG GOT SICK IN JULY 2004 don’t you think any POISON would probably be OUT HER SYSTEM BY NOW!
Can anybody help me, please e-mail me at [email protected] Thanks
