My Nightmare…

A few days ago I posted my story. Little did I know it was going to take a turn for the worse. We came home from the vet hoping he got Barleys swelling under control. Her ears went down a little but her entire body was still swelled up. Thursday morning she did not want to eat or drink anything. She also could barely walk. Barley just laid around the house all morning and when she would try to get up she was in pain and would always hold one of her legs up like she couldn’t feel it. We took her back to the vet and they’re was nothing he could do there and sent us to the animal hospital. They hooked her up to an iv and did some blood work. Friday morning they called and said it looks like vasculitis but could not say for sure if it was the Hartz flea drops that caused this but it was more than likely. They said she was doing good but about six hours later we got another call. They said she swelled up worse and had no more of her wrinkles… We went to go visit her and I couldn’t believe how terrible she looked. She was just laying in the kennel and couldn’t move. She knew we were there with her and kept trying to lift her head to look at us. The hardest thing was when we would talk to her she would cry, not normal wimpering crying she actually had tears rolling down her face… She knew she wasn’t going to make it much longer. She fought as long as she could. Saturday morning around 5, we received a call saying she went into cardiac arrest and they were trying cpr to bring her back but it wasn’t working. We had to let her go… She was our best friend and we spoiled her as much as we could but she spoiled us back. She was seriously one of a kind. Everyone we know has heard our story with Hartz products and they’re getting the word out. I just wish I saw this site before I used this on my baby girl… Rest in Peace Barley, you were our everything and we miss you sooo much!

  1. I am so sorry that this happened to you and your family…I know she is looking down and knows that it wasn’t your fault…I hope you guys are able to overcome this sad event and find another animal that you can love as much as you loved her.

  2. I’m so sorry about your dog. I know how much it hurts, and to have lost her because you used flea med. to relieve her from fleas is just wrong. I just lost my cat Tigger, which you may have read about, and I felt terribly guilty about it because I put the flea powder on him. I know its not my fault, and what happened to your dog isn’t your fault either. Its a crime that they can sell these products that do so much harm. I mean, think about it…if this happened to a child after being treated for head lice, do you think that stuff would still be on the market?? I don’t understand why it doesn’t seem to matter so much when it happens to our pets. I tell everyone now about Hartz products and not to use them.

  3. I am so sorry this happen to you my cat had a seizure this morning because of this flea medicine. She went into shock and we are still waiting for news I hope for the best. They need to take these medicine away its just hurting animals.

  4. Thanks for sharing your story, I’m really grateful. My husband just bought a product “Hartz” for my kitty, I had a bad feeling about the necklace and decided to investigate about the brand, I found this page and all the stories they have shared in it and I’m really very happy not to have used the collar on my pussy.
