My Two Cats to the ER

On Friday afternoon I put Hartz 3 in 1 Flea medicine on both my 1 year old cats, Tiggie and Koe. By nighttime Tiggie was having seizures, so we had to take him to the emergency. There he stayed on an IV for the night and got some muscle relaxers. We were so happy that our other cat wasn’t showing these symptoms. But a day after Tiggie got released from the animal hospital, Koe was showing some strange behaviour. He was lethargic and had a high fever. Since this was on a sunday, we had no choice but to take Koe to the Emergency as well. The vet wasn’t sure what was the cause, but I have a feeling it’s Hartz, little too much of a coincidence! Koe had to stay a night as well. They gave him some shots and did some bloodwork. They still don’t know what is wrong with him. So all I can do right now is hope no symptoms come back. They are both back home, but I am not leaving them out of my sight for the next days, especially after reading all the awfull stories on this website.
I really do wonder, did any animal ever take Hartz without it creating problems? I would really like to know those statistics…wouldn’t you? Shame on all the stores still selling this stuff.
