I really wish I did my home work when I recently got a 6 week old kitten that I named Moo moo… It started a couple of weeks ago when my cousin showed me pictures of her 6 week old kittens who were going to be taken to a farm if they didnt find homes. Me being the animal lover that I am took one that looked liked a cow and fell in love at first sight. The day i picked her up I noticed she had fleas and knew they had to go in a short time as I have 4 dogs,2 cats and 2 birds already so my aunt bathed her in baby shampoo three times but she still had lots more that needed to go. I bonded with her on my 3 hour drive home on thanksgiving monday and knew she was going to be a great addition to my family. Tuesday I went to Pet Value to look for flea shampoo after I didnt find any close to her age I decided to go to Walmart to look. I found Sergeants flea shampoo for 8 weeks and up and thought she is almost 7 weeks so will that 1 week difference be a big deal…probably not so I bought it and went home to bath her. It seemed to kill alot of fleas but I wasnt sure if they were all gone so on wednesday I did another bath with the shampoo and sure enough there was the fleas. I was asked why not take her to the vet and have them do a flea treatment but I replied its to expensive so I’m going to bath her myself. On friday I did yet another bath and once again found more fleas so I thought ok sunday should be the last bath she will need and once and for all these fleas will be gone!!! Saturday came and she was her normal self running around,meowing,eating,biting and doing her running pounce. We played that night until she fell asleep on my pillow that was on the couch so I carried her and the pillow to my bed where she woke up and started to play again until I fell asleep. I woke up sunday looking at her thinking how cute she looked sleeping with her mouth open so i rolled over and went back to sleep until my husband came in breakfast. He entered the room and picked Moo moo up and thats when we seen the blood on the bed,pillow,side of her face and in her mouth, we started to clean out her mouth to make sure nothing was blocking her throat and she looked like she was sleeping but was making little noises so we rushed her to the vet. When we got there we were asked if we wanted them to perform cpr as she was almost gone at that point,she was put on iv,oxygen and a heating pad as her temp was low and we were told they didnt have anything to relax her muscles so she wouldnt jerk while breathing so we would have to take her to the emergency clinic. If the vet left the iv lines in the emerg would charge us a min of 400 dollars for 12 hours of care and the vet office cost would be 250 or we could do home care which could take longer for her to come around but it was do able. The doctor left at 3pm and were to stay there until 4pm with her so we could take her off the oxygen to see how she would be at home and if anything happened the vet would come back. We took her off the oxygen for a bit during the bath they gave her and put her back on the heating pad to get her temp back up but we put it back on until 3:3o. Moo moo started to move her head and her one front paw and I was getting so excited thinking she was getting better when i felt hwer back paw moving,my husband went to inform them she was having another seizure and when they came back and checked her she had stopped breathing and called the vet back as her heart beat was dropping as well and before they got off the phone with the doctor she was gone. I picked her up to hold her for the last time when we seen more blood had come out of her mouth as she bite her tongue again. After paying the $388 bill I thought this could have all been prevented had I taken her to get a flea treatment. I was suppose to protect her yet I put this shampoo on her not knowing any of this could happen as it didnt say its toxic to animals and its the worst feeling in the world. I know I didnt make this product toxic to kittens but it doesnt take the guilt or pain away,losing a pet this way has put me into depression and I will relive this pain so that i can tell anybody and everybody my story if it prevent another death. Hartz and Sergeants should be ashamed of themselves and put warning labels on their products!!!
