Hartz Ultra Guard Flea and Tick Drops for cats

I applied Hartz Ultra Guard Flea and Tick Drops on my cat. She had a similar reaction: twitching, drooling and involuntary leg movements. I am amazed that this is on the market. I wrote to Hartz Customer Satisfaction Department. I am requesting a refund and reporting the adverse event. I assume that when I buy things off the shelf in the store that they are safe for use as directed. The FDA manages pet food and medicine. However, this product, and other topical flea treatments, are considered pesticides and are managed by the EPA. I am reporting the event to them as well. http://pesticides.supportportal.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=23008
Follow this link and click ask a question to submit the event. I know I am lucky because my cat bounced back after I bathed her. I think the reaction to this product is much worse if the animal ingests the product after grooming themselves.
