I love my animals, dearly; but I can not afford expensive medicines that Vets always recommend. Now I am constantly looking for natural products that really work with ‘No Harm’. When I moved to the country, almost 3 years ago, I never dreamed there would be so many ticks & mosquitoes. Baby Bear was being ate up. So I went to Wal-Mart to get a quick fix. I thought she would be better off having something to keep these parasites off of her as opposed to nothing. She was an old dog. So I got both Baby Bear & Miss Kiddie the stuff you apply down their back. Miss Kiddie is a very old cat, too. I put it on my dog first, then my cat. The cat immediately puked. I believe this saved her life. She is still here with me now. Baby Bear, with-in an hour was getting sick, no puking, but was getting weak. In the next hour she couldn’t even hold up her head. I knew it was due to the medicine because of the cat puking immediately after I had put it on her. I took Baby Bear to the Vet. He gave her an antidote for poison. She seemed to start feeling better, but it wasn’t long till she started going back down hill. Within 2 weeks she passed away. Now I have another dog. Tick season is on us again. I have just had him a few months. Last year I discovered that using Vick’s Vapor rub kept me from getting mosquito bites & no ticks, either. I swear by it. I just dampen my skin with a little water, rub a very small amount of Vicks Vapor Rub onto skin. Works better than anything I have ever used. And it lasted for hours at a time. Hartz should be out of the market. Can’t uderstand how they are being allowed to sell their obviously poison products. This happened to me about 2 years ago. And you know what the scariest part is? Most of the grocery stores around here carry only Hartz products for pet supplies. That is crazy.
