I recently bought Hartz Flea & Tick Spray, not looking at the name, but only surprised at how insanely cheap this medication (or more like poison) was compared to Frontline. I applied it to both of my cats, a tabby and a tortoiseshell. As soon as applying the product, my tabby began foaming and drooling, running around the house like the poor thing was on fire. My boyfriend & I immediately took both cats into the shower and washed them thoroughly… my tabby and tortoiseshell seemed fine, until a day and a half later. My tabby has foamed and drooled now twice today.
I love both very much, but I’ve had my tortoiseshell for the longest and she has a much more special place in my heart.. she hasn’t had the same reaction as my tabby, but she has become very lethargic compared to the extremely “cracked out cat” she once was.
I don’t have the money to take them to a vet, but if anything happens to either of them, I am suing. And from the looks of all the the posts I’ve read ( which was nearly all of them), you all should be too!
This shit is poison & it needs to be removed from ALL stores. The people that have spent hundreds in medical bills for their animals just to keep them alive after using Hartz, should be compensated!
After calling Hartz emergency hot line, and complaining to a woman about my poor cat, her response is “Well our product isn’t designed to kill animals.” No joke, that was her only response, and then she took my animals name for a case.
This is RIDICULOUS, and we all need to get together to get this shit out of stores, and away from unknowing consumers who pick Hartz because they’re trying to find a cheaper alternative to killing fleas.
