Last week, I found some ticks on my boyfriend’s English Springer Spaniel. Worrying about my own Papillon, I decided to go out and buy some tick preventative for my little boy. Unfortunately for myself and my dog, I bought Hartz UltraGuard flea and tick drops. The next morning at about 6:00am, my dog had no appetite and was very tired. I didn’t think anything of it because dogs, like people, have their off days when they just don’t feel very awake yet. When I got home from work at 3:00pm, my dog could not walk. He didn’t bark when I walked in like he normally does, he didn’t run up and greet me… he just laid there and attempted to wag his tail at my arrival, although he could not lift it off the ground. I immediately rushed him to the vet. They told me that they would have to keep him overnight and monitor his health very carefully. He did not survive through the night. He was a healthy one year old gorgeous Papillon boy who was so playful and friendly. He never bit anyone, destroyed anything, or fought with other dogs. He was happy, healthy, and full of love. Hartz stole that dog from me. I can only hope that soon they will be put out of business so they can no longer hurt innocent animals and their loving owners. I tried to do something to protect my dog from disease and discomfort, and it took his life. I feel terrible for what happened, and I hate Hartz for what they did to me and my family. I hope that nobody will have to go through this, but I know it will… it breaks my heart that this company is allowed to sell anything to anyone.
