Last night I bought the Hartz flea medication for dogs from Walmart and the Sergeant’s flea medication for cats. I knew that it probably wouldn’t have worked 100% liek Frontline or Advantage but I was just laid off from my job and couldn’t afford the $75 it would have been from the vet for the good stuff so I thought this would have been better than them having nothing on…until I googled a search for reviews about the two products. I also bought the Hartz flea shampoo for dogs. I was planning on going home today from work and bathing my animals and putting the flea stuff on them but I’m SOOOOOOO very glad I came across this site in time. I would have absolutely died if I would have caused that much pain and injury to my babies. I will be returning those things back to Walmart tonight and complaining to the supervisor about the side effects of those products, which probably won’t do any good but at least I’ll get it out there and then maybe he’ll do something or say something about it to someone higher up.
I will sell something of mine just to have the money to buy the GOOD flea medication for my pets instead of going the cheap way out and almost killing them. I am also going to complain to the Hartz company and go above and beyond and do everything I can to try to put a stop to stores selling this.
Again, thank all of you so much for your stories and warning on here! I know it’s too late for your pets, but you just saved 2 mini-dachshund puppies, and 3 kittens. 🙂
