DO NOT USE HARTZ 2 IN 1 FLEA AND TICK CAT SPRAY ON YOUR CAT!!!!!
November 11, 2007
I used Hartz 2 in 1 flea spray last night on my cat and I noticed that right after i was done spraying him he began to display strange behavior. At first, he was crouched down really low to the floor almost in a ball and walking from corner to corner like he was trying to get comfortable. Initially, I thought that he was acting this way because his fur was wet. So I let him be and went to bed. Today my children called me while I was on my way home from work and asked me if I had seen the cat or if I had taken him anywhere because they could not find him. I told them no and to call me back when they found him. Shortly after my son called me and told me that he had found the cat but he looked very sick and was foaming from his mouth and had diarrhea. I told them to wash him with warm water until I got home. When I got home I noticed that my cat was still crouched very low to the floor, salivating and foaming heavily from the mouth, and very lethargic. I immediately called the vet who said that they have gotten a lot of complaints about this product and they do not recommend that anyone use it for any reason. They also informed me that I could wash him again with dish detergent, preferably Dawn. If that doesn’t make him feel better shortly then he should be brought in for an emergency appointment. I am about to bathe him soon and will call Hartz tomorrow to tell them that this product needs to be recalled because my girlfriend has a cat who had a similar reaction to this product. Wish me luck…and avoid this product and pass the news on to others.
