Close Call!!

Earlier this evening I applied Hartz 3-in-1 flea dip onto both of my cats, Samuel (a 2 year old tabby) and Elise (a 13 year old torte) after only a few minutes I began to notice both cats laying in an uncomfortable crouching position, and began to wonder if there was something wrong. I shrugged it off though, thinking they were just being hissy because they were wet on the neck and it simply felt awkward. I went to bed, and ended up waking up around 2am realizing that Samuel wasn’t in bed. (quite unusual) I went into the living room and found him still in his crouching position, and when he saw me, he immediately got up and starting trying rub the dip on me and crying like it was really inconfortable. I started to immediately google the Hartz flea dip and found this site. Needless to say, I went and scrubbed the stuff off both of my cats. At this point, they both seem happier wet than with that stuff on their necks. I ended up getting quite a bit on me when Samuel was wiping it on me, and it really seemed to have an uncomfortable burning like tingle to it.

Can’t believe some of the stories I’ve read on here, I am very sorry for your losses, I don’t know what I would have done if I had lost my babies. Thank you so much for sharing your stories.

  1. During the 1960’s my parents owned a pet store and Hartz products were considered ” bottom of the barrel”, never to be used. I am surpised they are still in business. All flea and tick products contain poisons and should only be purchased fron a Vet. Thank goodness for the information found on this site.

  2. Please take the time to call hartz and file a adverse affects claim and get a claim number this forces them to file a report , then call the EPA and file a report with them they cannot help other peoples animals if they dont receivce reports , YOU HAVE A CHANCE NOW TO HELP OTHER PETS LIVE
