Hartz Flea and Tick Shampoo

Gave my dog a bath earlier today with Hartz Flea and Tick Shampoo.  This evening she is having seizures.  She has not had a seizure since last March when once again she had a bath earlier that day.  Is anybody doing anything about this?  Why are their products still on store shelves?  I would appreciate any input anyone might have on this.

  1. I sent Hartz an email and they assigned me a case # and asked me to call them. I will be doing that today.
    I brought some kittens to my vet last week and asked about Hartz and they said the NEVER recommend Hartz. He told me about issues with the flea products however I was specifically asking about the newborn formula as I had 4 kittens die after using it.
    I expect to get the runaround but will keep you posted.

  2. Purchased Sergeants TOY BREED Flea & Tick Shampoo 4/14/2011 – for Small Dogs and Puppies*

    My puppie is dead! I purchased this stuff off the shelf at the grocery store. It shows a picture of a Toy Breed dog, plus as mentioned above, it says for Small Dogs and Puppies (as the word puppies wraps around to the side of the bottle and you can barely see the “*” if looking straight at it. I am new to having a puppy and since it said for “puppies”, I incorrectly assumed that it was for all TOY BREED puppies. We only had our puppy for 2 weeks. It was 10 weeks old. If you get your reading glasses out or magnifying glass, and read the fine print, the bottle says not for puppies less than 12 weeks old. I could just shoot myself for not reading this ahead of time however my point is that since this crap is obviously extremely dangerous to puppies, the labeling should be changed such that the warning is in large print on the front of the bottle so that it cannot be overlooked, particularly if you don’t have your glasses with you. I’m sure they don’t put large print warnings on the front of their labels simply because it will hurt sales (so instead they would rather allow their product to hurt the puppies!). Something needs to be done about this.

  3. This shit doesn’t work. My dog still has fleas with over 10 uses of this crap shampoo. Something has to be done about this. I wasted my money on this stuff!

  4. I just washed 2 of my dogs with Hartz flea and tick shampoo Wednesday night but they still have ticks and it’s Friday. First off, I have no clue where they came from. We don’t have any weeds, grass, etc in our yard. But does anyone know how long this stuff takes to actually kill the ticks?? As for the person who mentioned the Seargents brand…they are crap. I used the drops and ended up having to contact the 800 # because my dogs were all itching tremendously and panting and restless. I’ll never use that brand again and now I’m thinking I need to not use Hartz either. What’s the best way to get rid of the ticks? We’ve sprayed our yard and we will be bombing our home this weekend. Don’t want them to get sick and don’t want us to get sick either.

  5. when u bath a dog u need to get the shampoo to lather realy well and then leave it on them of about 5 mins for it to work before washing it off (dont rinse it right away) and watch and be sure they are not licking the shampoo either while your bathing (licking the shampoo can make them sick with any flea shampoo remember ALL pestasides have chemicals in them and should never be consumed)

  6. After a bath with Hartz flea and tick shampoo my dog had an adverse reaction. It start with him panting and looking nervous. Then he started having twitches and difficulty walking. Within an hour he was convulsing and had lost nearly all motor skills, could not stand and lost control of his bowels.

    I’m fortunate enough to live in a city with an emergency veterinary service which doubtlessly saved his life. His body temperature was several degrees above normal and he would not drink fluids. Sedation, muscle relaxants and two IV catheters were needed to stabilise him.

    The total vet bill was over $1700. You can’t put a price on your dog’s life, if you really care about them. Hartz will be hearing from me regarding this and I hope they will make amends for nearly killing my beloved dog and causing me significant financial injury.

  7. this crap killed my kitten 3 months old! the 3 in 1 shampoo. he couldnt walk,eat ,drink. he spit up blood.we had to put him down last night.we need to get a ban on this company.
