I know I’m one of many and one of the lucky ones, but after finding out today that this problem is of epidemic proportion I decided to post my experience. If enough people scream and shout, maybe we’ll be heard.
My 2 year old yorkie/shitzu mix, Buzz started scratching a couple weeks ago. I tried just giving him a bath with flea & tick meds & oatmeal, but it wasnt enough. I didnt have time to get to the vet for their recommendation, so I purchased the only thing available at one of those huge “mart” chain stores.
As I read in another posting, within a couple hours my dog was itching & whining uncontrollably. I thought maybe it was because the fleas were on the move. The next day my dog’s hind leg was so sore from scratching, he wouldnt walk on it. I finally bathed him & bandaged the wound that ensued, but he was not himself for more than a week. He is just now eating and going to the bathroom without assistance.
Perhaps these inhumane makers of this product should try some human trials . . . on THEMSELVES! They’re monsters for keeping this product on the market!
