Bentley is a 2.5 yr old chihuahua mix weighing about 13 lbs. I applied the Hart Flea @ Tick drops for dogs 4-15lbs. My dog almost died. I applied them at approximately 5pm and around 10pm everyone went to bed as usual. Luckily he sleeps with my mom and she felt him shaking around 12am and felt a wet spot on the bed (which turned out to be vomit). She woke me up and it was a sight I will never forget. Bentley was shaking uncontrollably, couldn’t walk, drooling and had a heartbeat that was out of control. I immediately called my vet and she met me at her office. She immediately frowned when I told her what I had given him that day and told me to never use that again (worse thing on the market). We bathed him, IV was put in, valium was given and I was told not to get my hopes up because there was a high probability he wouldn’t make it. Luckily after 12 hrs of observation and more medication my Bentley was back to normal.
It cost me approximately $800 to save him. Trust me I would’ve paid anything but this would’ve never happened if Hartz wasn’t allowed to continue selling a product that is obviously killing/harming our pets. Please warn all your friends and family!! Maybe enough people will stop purchasing their products and they will finally go away.
