After treating my 3 cats with Hartz flea and tick drops, I had to rush one to the Vet within hours. The vet required blood tests to rule out the common diseases and the entered into a discussion with us about the toxicicty of the Hartz product we chose to use.
Fortunately, since we are diligent pet owners, we caught it quickly. We immediately bathed all 3 cats with Dawn dishwashing liquid (recommended by the vet) and watched the cats carefully. I believe we are out of the woods.
We then started the research and were horrified at the volume of pet tradgedies associated with this companies products.
What I suggest is this, go to www.walmart.com – www.target.com – www.petsmart.com These sites all have a contact us links at the bottom of the page. Voice your displeasure at the fact that these retailers sell products that are toxic to their customers beloved pets and that perhaps, as a pet lover….and their customer….you may choose to do the bulk of your shopping elsewhere. If those three retailers pulled this companies products off their shelves…….it would have a financial effect on the company. This is something that companies understand….when you effect their bottom line.
The EPA obviously doesn’t see a problem…..let’s let the retailers know that we, as animal lovers do.
