Hartz Flea Spray nearly killed my cat

I am the proud owner of a beautiful black haired persian cat. His name is Buster and last night I nearly killed him because of Hartz Flea Spray. Buster is 3 years old and the most sweet natured cat. I noticed a couple of fleas on him the other day so went out and bought the Hartz flea spray. Last night I sprayed him as per the instructions and within hours he was foaming at the mouth, seizing. He could not stand nor even meow. He just looked up at me with these huge black eyes begging me to help him. I rang the emergancy vet and they told me to bath him immediately with soft soap and if he didn’t improve immediately to bring him in. They said that Hartz is a killer and to never use the products. Pity I didn’t know that 24 hours ago.  Luckily for me after the shower things seemed to be better. He was walking although a tad wobbly and meowing softly. By this morning he had improved although still tired. I can’t understand how a company can keep products on the market that are so harmful to the animals they are supposed to be aiding. It is a disgrace!

  1. I DO KNOW WHAT YOUR GOING THRU AND MY HEART GOES OUT OT YOU AS MY CAT LAYS IN THE VETS OFF AS I TYPE HOPING AND PRAYING SHE MAKES IT THRU THIS

  2. i can believe i sprayed my cat(ruby) with this toxic chemical. why didnt i look up a safe remedy first. my poor cat who puts its trust in me, now its lying in a vets office trying to hang on. hang two days ago i noticed a flea on rubys tip of her ear, no big deal i thought ill just go down to my local pet store and buy a spray, shampoo, maybe both. its my cat ill buy and do whatever it takes to make sure shes clean and healthy. so i read few diffrent types and decided on the hartz spray. seemed safer a few sprays than a wash after words and repeat in 7 days if needed. four to six hours later,ruby could not walk she will try to stand and her hind legs will shiver. she also will not open her eyes completly.i didnt put the two toegether yet, shame on me . not an hour later my wife comes home i begin to tell her about ruby and her symptoms . my wife being the smarter of the two looks up this chemical online. what we read, the horrific stories i could not believe this is being sold .why would they sell this. yes, shame on me for not looking up a safe remedy, but im sure if there was a warning lets say like -CAN KILL YOUR CAT. i think i wouldve bought something else. we called the vet brought her in now she lays there hanging on .
