I have a horror story to tell you about,
I have a serval kitten of 8 months old, I almost lost her due to
sergeants tick and flea, I DID lose 2 house cats, and their deaths have been harder then hell to deal with, the last 72 hours have been a night mare!
on Saturday I decried that the flea situation was out of control , but I have been really broke since the flood and my husband has not been working because he broke his leg when he fell of the back of a hay truck, I have not been able to work as he needs me all the time to help him get around, any way I did not have enough money to pick up my normal advantage flea control so went to the store and saw this sergeants flea spray on sale, I bought 6 doses. I came home and applied it to my serval, and 5 of my 7 cats, everything seemed fine
but in the middle of the night I woke up to Michaela screaming and running and rolling and chewing on herself, like she was on fire! I her whole back and neck were blood red and she was panting heavily! I tossed her in the bath tub and covered her with dawn dish soap and scrubbed her down then wrapped her in a towel, she quieted down very quickly, so I dried her off and put her in her bed , With in 15 min’s she was quite and drinking water, but we were just getting started with this nightmare!!
My purebred flame point Siamese cat was yowling at the top of his lungs, I ran in to the other bathroom where he was, to find yet another of my cats my beautiful 10 year old tabby cat, Romeo laying in the bath tub in a pool of his own blood! he was pouring blood out of his mouth and was too weak to move, he went into a convulsion, spasmed once and died!! I screamed and yell for my husband who took him and gently put him in his crate.
my Siamese cat was breathing hard and showing the same symptoms as my serval, I grabbed him and doused him and thanks to my quick reaction he is still alive and getting better every day.mind you this was only 4 hours after I had applied the flea medicine!!, another of my cats was very ill for a couple of days but she pulled out of it,
I love all my cats but the biggest loss to me personally was my young female long haired tabby kitten, she was only 7 months old and the sweetest of all my cats, she hid that night and I thought perhaps she had gotten out the door , we found her early the next morning in a coma in my kitchen where she had drug herself to, she was soooo weak and totally gone I picked my baby up and she cried out one more time, I curled her in my lap and tried to feed her some water thinking she might come back if we could re hydrate her and it seemed for a moment that she would try but then she cried and died in my arms!
I just cried and cried and still am 2 days later,
all of the above events took place within 24 hours ! on Monday I took my cats down to the vet and he went over them with a fine tooth comb , they are going to be ok!
But it Is too late for Scarlet and Romeo who are now buried in my pasture next to my wonderful wolf,
I murdered my own cats and for that I can never forgive myself.
Of course when I called sergeants they took my information,deigned any problems with their products and said they would look into it,what a bunch of BS!
IF I HAD KNOWN WHAT THIS STUFF WOULD TO MY BABIES I WOULD NEVER HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!
THESE COMPANIES MUST BE STOPPED PEOPLE! THOUSANDS OF DOGS AND CATS ARE DYING OR BECOMING SERIOUSLY ILL DUE TO SARGENTS AND HARTZ,
PLEASE NEVER MAKE THIS MISTAKE WITH YOUR PERCIOUS BABIES AND LET EVERYONE YOU KNOW WITH PETS THAT THESE COMPANYS PRODUCTS CONTAIN A DEADLY INSECTICIDE!
THEY ARE MASS PRODUCING TOXIC POISON TO KILL OUR BELOVED PETS.!!
this might not have been the best forum to do this in but if it only saves one cat or dog then I will feel much better.
thank you for you time
take care alicia
