Kissie’s gone

You can’t imagine how horrorized I feel after finding this site and validating what I suspected all along, that my angel died because of this treatment. I noticed something was wrong right after the application and I asked the vet and he told me that these products do not harm pets. And I believed him and continued using it. I feel so bad, so guilty that I killed her. I thought I was doing the best for her, but she became so ill and the vet never validated my suspitions. I spent over $1000.00 dollars trying to save her life. I refused to put her to sleep hoping she would get better but she died. I still can’t believe she’s gone.

  1. I had to put my baby to sleep also due to the hartz Flea product. I had only put it on her two and half weeks before I haad to put her to sleep, the vet said that the product had created a mass on her liver that couldn’t be saved. I did a post in may if you would like to read it it is under Mittens

  2. I am very sorry that this terrible incident has happened to Kissie. I cannot imagine the pain that this has created. I wish you all the best in the future.

    Please do what you can to ensure that this horrible legacy of injuries and deaths does not continue. Please report this incident to the proper organization. The manufacturers are counting on people like you to NOT report these problems. The EPA knows that the number of injuries and deaths is under-reported but they are concerned about these pesticide ingredients. How do I report a suspected adverse reaction?

    1. Contact the National Pesticide Information Center at 1-800-858-7378. They maintain a database of pesticide-related illnesses for the EPA. The EPA uses this database to determine if dangerous pesticide products need to be removed from the market.

    2. Also, contact the manufacturer of the product. Their phone number is on the product packaging, or you can find their phone number by clicking here. The manufacturers are required by federal law to keep accurate records and submit them to the EPA. Hartz Mountain has been cited and fined by the EPA for failing to do this…keep the pressure on the manufacturers.

    3. If you would prefer to contact the EPA directly (provide them with the EPA Reg. # of the product, which is printed on the packaging), please write to :

    U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
    Office of Pesticide Programs (Mail Code 75
    Ariel Rios Building
    1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
    Washington, D.C. 20460
    E-mail: [email protected]

    Again, I am very sorry this has happened. I hope you can take the time to report this on behalf of Kissie and the thousands of other pets and families that have been hurt by these despicable products. All the best.
