Our beloved pet has just been buried in our backyard, thanks to the potent toxins contained in Hartz Ultra Guard.
Last week we noticed a bit of scratching so on my Saturday morning grocery trip, I picked up some Ultraguard. Saturday afternoon we gave her a bath. After that bath, we notice some strage behaviour, panting, mouth drouping, did not think much of it and figured she would shake it off in a few hours. Next day, she would not eat or drink. Breathing was labored. Sunday night I awoke to a mournful whimpering, labored breathing and a foul odor coming from our pet. Bladder control was absent.
The vet did not open until 8am but we were there at 7:45. I dropped her off and headed for work.
By 10, she had died.
We are shocked and I blame myself for using such a dangerous product without any researh. I mistakenly believed that since this produce was on a major supermarkets shelves, it had to be safe and effective.
I feel sick, looking out my window at a fresh pile of dirt in the backyard which is all that remains of what 3 days ago was a loving/loved member of the family.
How could I have allowed this to happen? I guess I was in to much of a damn hurry to be bothered with looking into the products I’m applying to our pet.
Shame on me. Shame on Hartz.
