Ear mites??? I think not!

My mother has a beautiful male Russian Blue, named Miskie. He had been acting funny for a few monthe, and they thought he may have had ear mites. He would walk funny, stumble and when he arched his back he would fall over Mom had been treating him daily with drops, and nothing was helping. Finally they took him to the vet, and the asstiant took one look at his behavior, called the vet and told him to rush over. When he arrived they took him in for examination. He asked my mother to come in to his office. He asked her if she used any over the counter flea and tick medications. She said yes, we buy ours from Walmart. He told her that both 20/20 and 60 Minutes had aired a special talking about the dangers of Hartz items. Hartz flea drops have destroyed Miskie’s muscle control, and has affected his neuro system. He will gradually get worse, there is no way to reverse the damage. He has to take a small amount of sedative every day to keep him from becoming to excited. If he does, he could collapse with a heart attack. He is only 1 year old, he still acts like a kitten, and loves to play…It is unfair that he has to spend the rest of his life drugged because of Hartz!!! Someone has to do something about this!!!

Thank you.

Amanda
