Today I used a Hartz flea and tick shampoo with oatmeal on the dog I recently adopted from a family off of craigslist. The previous owner gave me this shampoo. I was completely unaware to the negative side effects of it. Not long after his bath he started convulsing, salivating, was unable to walk, and was also completely unresponsive to me.
My boyfriend, and I spent the whole day getting him help. The first vet we went to told us there was nothing he could do for him, and that we needed to take him to the ER.
At the ER they basically asked for money, and told us that he needed to stay overnight. Almost a grand later they still havent done anything for him I feel. they gave him 2! 50 dollar baths trying to make sure all of the soap was off of his skin. They also hooked him up to a cathider, and a IV drip. His heart rate has not stabilized and I’m really terrified I’m going to lose him.
I haven’t even had him for a week. I fell completely in love with him the moment I saw him though. Now I’m left with the guilt of killing him.
