PLEASE contact your veterinarian before using ANY OTC medications!

I am a veterinary technician and was turned on to this web site thru a friend. It angers and saddens me that this can happen to our pets. Many consumers are not aware of the risks that may be involved with the use of over-the-counter medications or remedies. Hartz, as well as many other name brands. are a well known name and is sold in many stores. From flea/tick control to even just shampoo, I would advise that you speak to your veterinarian first. Many of these products not only do not work and are a waste of time and money, but some can be dangerous to you and your pet. Your veterinarian will be able to advise which the best and safest treatment is for your pet. Most of the time the treatment your veterinarian recommends will not cost much more than the OTC medications. In the event it does, you can be assured that it will be effective and safe for your pet. To me that is worth the extra money as all of my pets are a part of my family.

I am not writing this to knock this specific company. I just want to pass on some general awareness about OTC medications for our pets. PLEASE, BEFORE USING ANY OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICATIONS FOR YOUR PET, PLEASE, PLEASE CONSULT WITH YOUR VETERINARIAN FIRST. They will be able to advise you whether or not there are good OTC medications for your pet.
