  1. Well seargants is EXTREEMLY dangerous to any animal…I had to take my dog to the vet and waste 160 dollars for just pain meds and benedril, and then I called the complaint line and I cussed this guy out that claimed to be a vet and said to just wash him several times in dishwash detergant…I explained to him what the vet i visited said, when they shake their head so much they could end up having a seizure from the flea and tick remover and of course called me a liar..jackass, but just wash your dog 3-4 times and use only dish wash because its the only thing that will get the poison off and itll probably take 3 days for your dog get completely back to normal…o yeah by the way…that stuff uses the same stuff they use in nerve gas…thats why your dog is scratching so much, cuz his skin is crawling

  2. I am very sorry that this has happened to you and your pet. This has happened literally thousands of times with Sergeant’s products. All of these products, with pesticide ingredients, have caused many documented injuries and deaths. Sergeant’s, according to EPA statistics, is among the worst. The EPA recently announced that they would be intensifying their analysis and study of the effects of these products. Hopefully they will do the right thing and stop registering these products for sale. In the meantime, please help by reporting this incident to the proper organizations. First, please call and report the incident to the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC), which works cooperatively with the EPA and has the responsibility to provide them with the data and statistics regarding adverse incidents. Their telephone number is: 1/800-858-7378. Have the flea collar package available if possible. Secondly, the manufacturers have an obligation under federal law to provide adverse incident data, so be calling Sergeant’s you have helped put pressure on the manufacturer to do the right thing with their reporting practices These are critical steps in assisting the EPA and the public in removing these dangerous products from the marketplace and preventing the tremendous damage they have done to pets and families. Please don’t let Sergeant’s get away with this. They count on people not reporting these incidents. Thank you. All the best to you and your little Papi.

  3. Hi Papi, my name is Kelly and I work for Sergeant’s Pet Care Products. First, I hope your little Papi is doing better. Unfortunately, Sergeant’s Gold Squeeze-On for Dogs is formulated only to be used on dogs over 12 weeks of age and over 9 pounds, according to package directions. Using the product against package directions can lead to reactions, just as using human medications or treatments outside of package directions can do. If a dog is too young or too small according to the warnings, their system cannot process the active ingredients properly. I stress this point because there is a serious issue with misapplication of all spot-on flea and tick treatments, both those sold over the counter and those sold through veterinarians. In fact the ASPCA has issued their opinion about this as well. We hope all loving pet parents will read this very important article –

    Matt, thank you for encouraging people to report their experiences both to us directly and to the EPA. You indicated in your comment that Sergeant’s does not want people to report their pets’ reactions. This is not the case. In fact we encourage pet owners to contact us immediately if they have any issue with any of our products. We are in full support of the EPA’s work to ensure pet safety.

    I’m not quite sure what data you are referring to that cites Sergeant’s as being ‘one of the worst’, but that is not present in any of the EPA data that has been reported. A wide range of spot-on flea and tick treatments are currently being reviewed by the EPA, including those sold over-the-counter by Sergeant’s and Hartz and those sold through veterinarians, like Frontline. We are concerned, as a company who has been dedicated to pet health for more than 140 years and as a group of individuals who have and love our own pets, that all of our products are fully tested and approved before ever going on the market.

    While less than 1% of pets using these products have experienced a reaction, and of those the great majority of those have been mild to moderate according to the ASPCA, we are still greatly concerned about any pet who has a negative experience. We have recently introduced an improved formulation of Sergeant’s Gold Squeeze-On for Dogs that includes additional skin-soothing ingredients for those dogs who have had skin sensitivities. We believe that this improvement, along with much greater public education about the importance of following the package directions closely and not misapplying the product to dogs too young, too small, with underlying health conditions, etc., will greatly reduce the number of pets experiencing a reaction.

    We strongly encourage all pet parents whose pets have had a reaction to any of our products to contact us immediately through our Consumer Affairs department at 800-224-7387.

  4. i need to say thank god we don’t use this product. EVER. we were told about it and investigated it and said NO WAY. my two dear friends were not so she told me she put a bit on her dog “pony”, and shortly after she started to shake, and twitch her hind legs. she was so afraid. she washed her, but it needed medical help. pony lived, but get this the other persons dog, which is a big big bull dog had some ,and before they knew what was going on they were in route to the coast.rocky the bull dog started bleeding as he pooped. oh my god why is this product still being sold.i’m waiting ,and praying the dog makes it. SHAME ON THE COMPANY THAT PREYS ON INNOCENT PETS.i’m told that you reap what you sew, or in this case what you sell!!!!!!!

  5. To Kelly:

    My 7 year old appropriately sized formerly healthy dogs are now in agony. I have washed them three times, I have given them Benadryl, but this is clearly neurological damage. I am off to the Emergency Vet. If you have a conscience, you might want to seek other employment. This stuff is toxic.

  6. Why would anyone with an education in animal care and a presumably pet lover continue to work for a company that puts marketing profit ahead of humane duty. Do you not have a problem promoting something so painful and cruel to a small animal that depends on man to be his voice? How do you look at yourself everyday after knowing animals are dying from this. I am apalled that you even post here and act so glib.
    These animals are children to us. Reimbursing vet cost will never bring back our pet or cover for the cruelty that baby endured. You owe it to yourself to wake up and see who you are really working for.
    Yes, by all means there needs to be a boycott. And lawsuits to follow.

  7. I am a class action lawyer in the San Francisco area, investigating the toxicity of Hartz flea products and the possibility of filing a class action against the company. I am very sorry for your loss. Please contact me if you would like to talk about your experience.

    Thanks very much.
