Pet shampoo burns cornea

My dog was shampooed w/ Hartz Aromethary Invigorating shampoo. When he was rinsed, we noticed he couldn’t stop blinking. The next morning, one eye remained affected. The vet said that his entire corneal area had been affected and was damaged. He was given four separate eye drops and pain meds. A follow-up visit revealed that he was healing well. The vet said if he gotten an infection it could strongly impact his vision. Two hundred dollars later, he is doing fine. The shampoo bottle had a cursory warning about avioding eye and ear contact. The warning should have been bold enough to catch the owners attention. Who would think a shampoo was cadustic w/o a clear, noticiable warning. Spread the wrod.
