Hartz Flea Medication – I Poisoned My Cat!!!

I just put Hartz on my cat yesterday and she seemed okay except for trying to scratch off the medication. I followed the instructions exactly. Maude Marie is over two years old, over 10 pounds and is an outdoor, very active feline. Today she was very lethargic and will not come to me. She has eaten and drank very little. She is shaking her back legs constantly and trying to still lick off the medication. She is not her normal self. Because of her weird behavior I decided to check online and to my dismay, I have found several stories about Hartz medication, specifically the Hartz Flea and Tick medication for cats over 10 pounds. That is exactly what I put on Maude Marie. I just went outside to find her to take her to emergency and now I can’t find her. She never leaves the yard. I am so scared that I have poisoned her. I can’t believe some of these articles are over three years old and this medication is still on the shelves. I am sick over it. I am going out to find her. Please post and I vow to place fliers everywhere I can to let everyone know not to use this dangerous product.
