HARTZ FLEA POWDER ALMOST KILLED MY CAT

  TO ANYONE WHO USED THIS HARTZ FLEA POWDER,DID YOU HAVE A SICK CAT OR DOG AFTER USING IT? WELL I DID. MY CAT STARTED TO GET FLEAS,EVEN AS AN INDOOR CAT. HE NEVER VENTURED OUTSIDE,UNLESS WE TOOK HIM TO THE STORE WITH US AS I DID REGULARLY HE WAS A VERY ACTIVE AND PLAYFUL CAT. FULL OF LIFE AND HE WAS ALWAYS BY MY SIDE AS HE HAS BEEN SINCE THE DAY I ADOPTED HIM FROM THE OUTSIDE AS A STRAY. I HAVE LEUKEMIA AND DIABETES AND MY CAT IS MY STRENGTH TO FACE THEM BOTH. WHEN I AM WATCHING A MOVIE HE IS THERE TOO. WHENI AM ON MY COMPUTER,IN MY OFFICE,HE IS ALWAYS THERE ON MY DESK,MAKING SURE HE WAS KEEPING AN EYE ON ME. IN OTHER WORDS WHERE EVER I WENT,THE CAT WAS THERE TOO. WHAT EVER I DID HE HAD TO INVOLVED. A VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIP WE HAVE AS VERY GOOD FRIENDS. HE LIKES MY WIFE TOO BUT HE IS A DADDY’S CAT AND ALWAYS WILL BE. WE LOVE HIM VERY MUCH. HIS NAME IS MASIAH AND GOD HOW CLOSE I CAME TO LOOSING HIM. MY CAT WAS NEVER ONE FOR A COLLAR,SO WE DECIDED TO USE THE POWDER INSTEAD. HARTZ POWDER. IT SAID ONCE PER WEEK,SO I USED IT 1 TIME PER WEEK AND PUT IT ON HIM ON SUNDAY,TO KEEP TRACK. THE FIRST TIME NOTHING HAPPENED,EVERYTHING WENT WELL BUT BY THE SECOND DAY OF THE SECOND TIME I USED IT,SOMETHING WAS VERY WRONG. HE BECAME A CAT WITH NO ENERGY,HE SCRATCHED MORE THAN HE EVER DID,HE STOPPED EATING AND WELL TO PUT IT STRAIGHT TO THE POINT,I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO DIE 2 TIMES AND IT SCARED ME TO DEATH. A GIRL AT THE STORE I BOUGHT THE POWDER TOLD ME TO LOOK OUT BECAUSE THE POWDER KILLED HER DOG BUT I DID NOT LISTEN. WELL ANYWAY WE KNEW SOMETHING WAS VERY WRONG,SO WE TRIED TO GIVE HIM A BATH TO WASH THE POWDEROFF BUT WE DID NOT DO A GOOD JOB. HE DOESN’T LIKE WATER BUT WE DID GET ENOUGH OF HIM WET DOWN THAT IN A COUPLE DAYS HE SEEMED A LITTLE BETTER. WE HAVE USED NO MORE POWDER SINCE THEN AND NEVER WILL AGAIN. RIGHT NOW MY CAT IS RECOVERING VERY SLOWLY. HE STILL HASN’T MUCH OF A VOICE YET AND HE STILL HAS NO ENERGY BUT HE IS A HELL OF A LOT BETTER TODAY THAN 2 WEEKS AGO. IT IS GOING TO TAKE TIME,SEVERAL WEEKS BY MY GUESS BUT I THANK GOD HE DID NOT DIE BECAUSE THIS CAT IS MY BEST FRIEND AND TREATS ME LIKE A VERY SPECIAL PERSON. I WOULD BE LOST WITHOUT HIM. HARTZ IS ALSO LUCKY HE DID NOT PASS AWAY,FOR IF THAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED,THEY WOULD HAVE HAD TO DEAL WITH ME. SO ANYONE READING MY POST,PLEASE DO NOT USE HARTZ POWDER FOR FLEAS. IT DOES NOT KILL FLEAS BUT IT WILL SURE HARM YOUR CAT. WELL I MUST WRITE HARTZ NOW AND CHEW THERE BUTS OUT. THEY NEED TO TAKE THAT POWDER OFF THE MARKET. THANK YOU.  GARY RIBBLE

  1. my cat was not so in luck we put sergeants silver kill you cat drops kill it did on day seven she was gone i can not stop from crying i donot know what to do help

  2. Hello, I saw your post and had to reply,I apologize,I am too upset to have read the entire post,but,my five year old cat had fleas,due to work could not get to the vet untill Monday,so we bought the Hartz flea drops,granted she wasnt feeling good prior to the drops,but she died the next day after the drops,although she wasnt feeling good,she was still eating some and drinking water and milk.

    So sorry for all affected by this,and I guess I will never know if that is why she died.

  3. I used it on my 12 year old cat and he died. i was devastated. and i mean devastated. i couldnt stop crying. i cried all day at home. i cried at work. i cried in the car. my cat was my very best friend and has been for the past 12 years. he was always there for me when i was angry at my boyfriend, or my dad, he sat on my lap all the time, kissed my face, he loved me and i loved him. i miss him so much. He seemed to have been fine until i used that powder on him. then one day he wouldnt come out from under the chair, and i had noticed he wasn’t eating, however he was drinking his water. he came out from under the chair and layed in my window over night and acted very sick the next day and could not walk. i lost my cat that night while i was at work and had to come home to find him. it was very hard. but i cannot forgive MYSELF because i feel like it is my fault, like i murdered my cat. i did not know that hartz was so bad. my boyfriend keeps telling me that it was old age. i’d like to think that, but i know it was the powder. fuck hartz.

  4. I am so sorry , thank u for sharing your stories. I used sentry all natural drops on my cat. They burned her and left scabs and it looked like she didn’t feel we’ll also and she hated me and avoided me for half a week. Her scabs are almost healed now and she likes me again. I’m sooo glad she’s alright. Does anyone have any recommendations on flea products I can use on her , I’m scared to use any of the collars, drops, or powder, what should I use for flea prevention that won’t hurt my animals???
