I am just sick reading about about you poor people who have had tragic results using “hartz” flea and tick medicine. Fortunately, I only have to look at a HUGE hair loss on the back of my persian. I had a blue tube of the Hartz “3 in One” that I put on Sweetpie last Thursday. By Friday morning, I was seeing huge clumps of black hair on the carpet. I thought it was just her shedding her winter coat…we’re in Boston. By the afternoon, she had an open sore and a bald spot that is 3″x 5″ on her back. It’s just heartbreaking for me to think I did that to her.
I called Hartz Sunday nite to let them know what happened. I was surprised to have a person answer the phone. However, when I explained the situation, I found her snippy and condescending. How dare they not admit that these chemicals were too strong for my indoor cat. She told me to put vitamin e on her back…i’m trying that but, think I’m going to stick with my original plan of using neosporin, which the vet said I should use for her eye ducts.
I’m so Upset with this company…I’m ready to go to the Boston Globe!
