I am so incredibly heart broken over what my little hotdog Hank went through last night. I applied this horrible flea & tick remedy on Hank, and not only did it just sit there and create a mess( be careful not to ingest it yourself, not that you would use it) on the back of HIS neck, but within an hour he was foaming at the mouth, shaking his head ( as if water was in his ear), scratching, and walking like a drunken sailor. My boyfriend suggested that i go online to a forum to see if it was a reaction to the medication (god knows it doesn’t say anything like: WILL CAUSE SEIZIERS, POSSIBLE KIDNEY FAILURE AND DEATH. WASH IMMEDIATLEY WITH DISH SOAP, on the box). Come to find out that hundreds, even thousands of people and their pets have been through this. I hate to say , but some have died. How is this stuff able to survive on the market? I WILL not be going to Petco anymore, they don’t seem to care….and forget Sergeants 1.800 #. That Lady couldn’t give two shi….s about whathappens to us. Frontline really is the only way to go.
So, after reading from other people, i quickly washed him with dish soap and gave him some Benadryl. It’s been 24 hours and he has yet to eat or drink and is still acting odd. Everyone says that a vet really can’t do much, and just to watch him closely. My heart hurts so very much, not only for hank, but for the unsuspecting people who are soon to buy this for their pet. I am going to Pecto and putting stickers on all the Sergeants boxes, to warn them. THIS IS AN OUTRADGE!!!!!!!!! I am also going to call the consumer board. If you have gone through this, i suggest you do the same.
A very hurt mom…………………………..
