Hartz flea and tick treatment

Back in the summer of 2001, my cat Brownie was treated with Hartz flea and tick treatment. I put it on her at about 9 pm. I woke up at 4:00 am and she came to me at 4:30 am. She showed me that she was all shaken up. To my thought that it was the Hartz treatment. I called the emergency vet and told me to bring her in. I rushed her to the hospital and was told the cost of $500.00. I was so shocked and upset. I told them that I didnt have any money cuz I was on a tight budget at that time. So they reduced the price to $200.00 and I pay them $100.00. I left my poor cat at the hospital and drive home crying.

Few hours later I got a call from the Vet and was told that they called the Hartz company and they are paying for my cat’s vet bills. Thanks goodness. Poor Brownie staying at the hospital for 24 hrs. The next day I came to get her and she was looking fine and was happy to see me. Of course that her mom. 😀 I was told to bring my cat to my regular vet which I did. She stay there for half of the day. I was so glad to have her home again. My regular vet gave me the most expensive brand for the treatment. I was glad to use it. But poor Brownie hate the treatment cuz she remember what happened to her. She will try to run away from me.

She is still with me and doing great as the cat should be.
