Hartz Oatmeal Shampoo-Sophie

Sophie is a 5 month old little boxer mix I have gotten from the Human Society. She seems to be over all very healthy and energetic. Although after using Hartz Oatmeal shampoo (non-flea and tick) I have noticed that she has become very itchy and has hives on her back as well as her belly.
I have read comments and stories regarding using Hartz Flea and Tick Oatmeal Shampoo causing hives and itching or worse. Sophie has itched her poor little armits raw to the point where they are bleeding and bright red. After using the product and reading all these horror stories, you can bet we will no longer be using Hartz products of any type. Any suggestions on how to help her heal?

  1. we also have a 5 month old German Shepherd, named Sophia, and we were using the Hartz oatmeal shampoo and she would also break out after every bath. It just so happened that we were at PetSmart for a puppy training class only one day after bathing her, and we went into the grooming section to get her nails clipped. The lady there noticed her irritated skin and asked us what product we were using.. After i told her, she advised me to throw out all Hartz products and that the vet there can’t believe that those products are still being sold after all the poisoning they have caused!She recommended Nature’s Miracle products or anything there at the pet stores and only bathing maybe once a month.We are very fortunate to have learned about the dangers of these products this early!

  2. I had a beautiful female min pin her name was Miley she was 12 years old. I bathed her with the hartz oatmeal shampoo one night and two days later she passed away in her sleep. I noticed that she was acting funny the night before she died and she was also breathing kimd of fast. I was worried about her and kept a close eye on her. She acted better and layed in her bed to go to sleep I also fell asleep. I woke up to her being dead in her bed. I learned about the hartz shampoo just recently and I’m not sure if it is the cause but she was fine up til that bath. RIP Miley I miss and love you! September 22, 2019
