LOVING PET OWNERS BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT

I USED THIS PRODUCT ON MY CAT RECENTLY. NOT KNOWING THAT IT WAS MEANT ONLY FOR DOGS, I APPLIED THE HARTZ ONE SPOT ON MY CAT. WITHIN A FEW HOURS SHE BEGAN CONVULSING AND SALIVATING. I RUSHED HER TO THE ANIMAL EMERGENCY CENTER WHERE SHE SPENT 2 DAYS WITH SEVERE CONVULSIONS. THE VETS GAVE HER A POOR PROGNOSIS. THANKFULLY SHE SURVIVED. AFTER SEVERAL DOSES OF METHOCARBONAL AND DIAZAPAM SHE IS SLOWLY STARTING TO RECOVER. SHE IS STILL EXTREMELY WEAK AND STILL UNBALANCED. MY VET INFORMED ME THAT THIS PRODUCT WAS TO BE RECALLED IN OCTOBER OF 2005. I WENT SHOPPING ON MAY 24, 2006 AND TO MY SURPRISE, EVERY STORE I VISITED STILL HAD SHELVES FULL OF THE PRODUCT. THERE SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN NO RECALL. AT LEAST NOT IN MY CITY.
I WOULD ENCOURAGE PET OWNERS NOT TO PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT. CONSULT YOUR VET FOR OTHER ALTERNATIVE, SAFE FLEA CONTROL FOR ALL YOUR PETS.
