My beautiful 1 1/2 year old cat Harley is fortunate to be alive right now. I places a Hartz flea collar on her and my other kitten ( 9 months old ) on them both. Mookie was not affected, but not even 10 minutes after putting the collar on Harley she collapsed. I took the collar off of her promptly and rushed her straight to the vet, while my mom took the other collar off of Mookie. They gave her a bath and immediate fluids, which is probably why she is still with me now.
Everything was fine for a while, but she collapsed again a few short days after her first incident, and I never did put the collar back on her. She has been back to the vet, given another bath, and also more fluids. She still has seizures, where she will just go limp. but I stay by her side and pet her and talk to her. She’ll eventually snap out of it. She is fortunately regaining energy, eating, drinking, and attempting to play now. I HOPE with all of my heart this shows she’s on the road to a full recovery. She’s not quite back to 100% yet, and still a bit unstable on her feet at times, though she refuses to accept it as she tries to jump around and play as she did before this horror happened. I keep her by me at all times and feed her numerous times to get her back up to par.
Hartz should be ashamed, selling products that we trust will help our animals, but instead Slowly kill them from the inside.
Even though my beloved cat is getting better, she’s not in the clear yet. I can only hope she completely recovers.
