I have an 8 year old wiener dog name Sallie. She is a little small for most wiener dogs. Anyway, I noticed she has been having fleas for a few weeks and I started getting fleas too. My mom put a white flea collar on her (I don’t know if it’s Hartz). Sallie still has fleas and I just wanted to help her get rid of them. I remembered that we had Hartz 2 in 1 rid flea shampoo, we have had it for a bit and it’s half empty from it being used either on sallie before or out blonde lab, I’m not sure. I didn’t put too much on her, so little that on some parts where I put it I couldn’t even see the foam from rubbing it on her fur. I washed it off well and then dried her off with a towl. As always, she started running around the house and wanted me to chase her. She liked her paws and legs because they were still a little damp (I didn’t put the shampoo on her legs because they were submerged in the water). That was a few hours ago and she didn’t seem ill or anything. I read that they get sick within 1 – 2 hours if they do get sick. Afterwards, I was looking up the information on Hartz to see if it’s known to do the job and get rid of fleas well and then I came across the page. I immediately went upstairs to check on her but she was sleeping with my patents, I went to pick her up but she growled at me like always and she seemed a little tired (I just woke her up). My dad wanted to keep her so I went downstairs but I threw out the Hartz shampoo and I’m never using Hartz again! I’m still worried that she might get sick. She has been my friend for 8 years and knowing that she got sick or died from a product I used on her would be unbearable.
