Hello, I’m an owner of an older Jack Russell and about a month ago found he had fleas. Well we bathed him and vacuumed our apartment. I ran across the street to the pharmacy and all they had was Hartz. So I applied that and then sprayed select areas of carpet, my dogs bed, our couch, and some pillows.
While I haven’t seen any negative side affects, I did find this site and it worried me greatly. It’s only been one day since I sprayed my apartment but I’m worried when I see him licking the pillow or just sitting there that the Hartz spray is there slowly getting to him. What worries me more is we have a new puppy coming Sunday to be his companion. I’m worried to that this will affect the puppy. Is there anything I can do, apart from trashing the pillows, bed, couch, that can prevent a possible poisoning? Or am I now in the clear and should consider myself lucky there weren’t any side affects? I would appreciate any and all advice. Thank you.
