Could have saved my pup a day at the Vet had I known…..

I used Hartz flea and tick oil on my dogs Saturday evening.  Sunday night, my Merry started vomiting and has spent all day Monday at the Vet. Hospital.  I will NEVER buy another Hartz product as long as I live.

  1. I found this on

    In 2005, the U.S. EPA canceled permission to use phenothrin in several flea and tick products, at the request of the manufacturer, Hartz Mountain Industries.[2][3] The products were linked to a range of adverse reactions, including hair loss, salivation, tremors, and numerous deaths in cats and kittens. In the short term, the agreement called for new warning labels on the products.

    As of March 31, 2006, the sale and distribution of Hartz’s phenothrin-containing flea and tick products for cats has been terminated. However, EPA’s product cancellation order did not apply to Hartz flea and tick products for dogs, and Hartz continues to use phenothrin in a concentration of 85.7% in many of its flea and tick products for dogs.[4]

    May 10, 2013, from the Hartz UltraGuard page

    Active Ingredients
    Phenothrin 85.7%
    TOTAL 100.0%
