Hartz Flea Medicine Made My Cat Sick!

I recently purchased Hartz over the counter. I thought I was getting a great deal since it was a 3-pack for $5 and I have three cats. I was wrong. The same day one of my cats started acting strange, secluding himself, and having trouble with his eyes I took him to the vet. The vet prescribed drops after I told her I had given him the flea medicine. She said I was LUCKY he only got an eye infection and that many animals have worse reactions. I think it was because although I put it between his ears on his head he was able to lick the access that spread and somehow got an eye infection that way. When I took him home I fed all my cats lunch and the same cat with the eye infection threw up his food immediately after finishing eating. I was worried because he has never thrown up food. Only hair balls. I searched online and found this website and decided to bath all my cats to get any medicine that was still on the surface of their skin and fur off. I will never use this product again and would advise others not to as well.

One thought on “Hartz Flea Medicine Made My Cat Sick!”

  1. I am happy that your cats are okay. Please go back to the store where you purchased your product and complain that they are selling toxic products for animals and that you will not shop there again. The only way to stop this from happening is to have the stores stop carrying the product. No wonder it is so cheap, doesn’t Hartz have any humanity???
