Hartz Ultra Guard kills Pomeranian

Yes that’s right on Monday 11-17-08 I applied Hartz ultra guard flea and tickdrops to our brand new addition to our family, Scooter, a Toy pomeranian weighing about 4.5 lbs. I gave him the 4 to 12 pound dose as directed. By the next day he was acting strange but we didn’t think much about it. Over the next couple of days he was acting more and more strange. This is our first experience with an inside dog, and we had never had to use this type of product before. We thought we were helping him by getting rid of the fleas. We did not even think that it could be the flea drops killing him. By Friday it was apparent that things were not going to get any better. My wife took him to the vet and they started around the clock care until Sunday morning when we had to make the decision to put him down. He weighed less than 2 lbs by this time. Apparently it attacked his nervous system and he would not respond treatment I can’t believe that any company would sell this stuff even if it rarely kills animals. My wife, 15 year old son and I are totally heart broken over the loss of this family member. Scooter will always be remember.

We miss you

  1. I put this on my pom last night and we are up with her a huge snow and can’t get out tonight to take her anywhere . We called the animal hospital and they did not have anyone in. She is very sick. She is caughing and gaging real bad. She is “our” baby. We have given her a bath, I just can’t lose her!!!! She is our only dog….Her name is Adiya (God’s tiny treasure in Hebrew)
