My niece asked to see Cujo as she hadn’t seen her in a while, when I took her downstairs I found Cujo sitting under a chair breathing heavy as if she couldn’t breathe. Her eyes were half closed and she just looked like something wasn’t right with her. She then walked upstairs and walked fairly slowly. When she got upstairs she defecated on herself as she had diarrhea and she threw up a couple of times.  It was late at night so I contacted an ER vet. I explained the problem and they told me to come in immediately. I brought her in and she was a totally different cat. She was alert, bright eyed and appeared fine. The vet checked her vitals, looked her over and said she appears fine. He offered to perform a series of tests that totalled about $250, but said he thinks she’s perfectly fine and that there shouldn’t be a problem so I did not get the tests. As soon as I got her home, she was vomiting all over the place, barely able to breathe and she went into a corner to hide. She died soon after. I immediately thought of the product I applied to her a couple of days prior (Hartz Ultra Guard Plus spray). I followed the instructions as directed on the label and sprayed her entire coat with an even spray all around. Cujo licked all of this off of her and a couple of days later, she passed.

  1. I’ve used Hartz in the past, though the product had little effects on my cats luckily. My purebred Turkish Van, Nala, however, had some bad reactions. She lost fur around her tail and neck, and ended up vomiting constantly. A kitten we owned for a while also had the same reaction, though he was lucky to be saved when we brought him to the rescue center, saying he was a stray as we had little to no money to save him outselves.

    I’m sorry to hear about your cat! It must’ve been a horrible thing to loose a pet, and to such a thing too. If my cats, all four, were to have died from the product, I can garentee Hartz would have had a nasty wake-up call from my lawyers. Because I won’t stand for this.

    Down with Hartz and their killing of pets world-wide!

  2. Thanks for your sentiments. I am very upset about Cujo’s death and my initial thought was too seek legal retribution, but it seems like such an overwhelming venture and wouldn’t know where to begin, especially given the fact that I have limited resources. But, I definitely want payback as it isn’t fair.
