Our Husky Puppy

OK, this is probably the hardest thing i think i have ever had to go through.  Back in March Me and my girlfriend went to get us a new addition to the family.  My Uncle knew a Husky breeder and we were off to find our new family member.  We literally spent all day looking through all 6 puppies before we figured out that we wanted our Luna Belle.  She was the runt and of course had her problems ill be it minor, which was a bladder infection.  We took her to our local VCA Animal hospital and they took great care of her.  that was the only problem we have encountered here until recently when we went out to the store because she had fleas and got Hartz brand Flea dip!  Directly after applying (by specification no less and ensuring that i kept her face dry and out of the water) she wasn’t acting right but not so terribly off that we could notice.  See the problem was it was right before bed and around 9 p.m. she gets sleepy.  (DAY 1)The next morning she wasn’t moving, barely eating and drinking and we rushed her directly to the VCA again.  We brought the Flea dip with us which the VCA had to throw into the BIOHAZARD CONTAINMENT BOX!!!!  They washed her 3 times to try and get all of the “product” off and we took her back home after her getting checked out.  (DAY 2)  She had started coming around a little better and eating better, but she still wasn’t moving around.  Sleeping most of the day away, which is something our vet said may happen.  Per our vet “she may be a little lethargic for the next 24 to 48 hours”.  We have been watching and she has had issues walking on her back paws.  Trying to keep them straight and not putting much weight on them.  Night of day 2 we make her get up and walk around.  she looks so scrawny and not well kept.  Waiting to see how day 3 will go…. Any advice would be great, but we are still taking her back to the vet today for another evaluation.  I believe she may have had a seizure and that is why she isn’t walking well.

One thought on “Our Husky Puppy”

  1. I am very sorry to hear about your Husky puppy and hope that she will quickly recover. Try to get her to eat and drink. If she won’t eat, try feeding her a cooked egg with rice and cottage cheese, or small pieces of chicken. If she won’t drink, the vet may have to use an IV to keep her hydrated and flush the poison from her system.

    Contact Hartz and let them know what happened. Their phone number is (800) 275-1414. Find out from them how to submit your vet expenses for reimbursement.

    If Hartz refuses to help you, consider joining a class action lawsuit.

    Here is an article about several lawsuits that have been filed recently against Hartz:
