Not Sure About This Yet

My 3 year old cat Queen Jack started showing symptoms of CKD (chronic kidney disorder) after 2 weeks of using Hartz Hairball Remedy Plus. We’ve yet to take her to a vet to find out if she really does have CKD and what we must do to save Queen Jack.

Now I’m not sure if it’s the hairball remedy that contributed to her current condition, but I do know that she howled once (just once) in pain during a potty box visit during the time of using that Hartz crap. I stopped using the Hartz hairball stuff on Queen Jack and she’s starting to get better, but I am still taking her to the vet just to be sure what’s going on. I don’t want to lose her forever.

As for Hartz… I knew their flea stuff was bad. Trust me my other cat Peanut was hurt by the stuff you squeeze on a cat’s neck to combat fleas and I stopped using it immediately. These people need to be put out of business. They are evil and shameless–anything for money.

  1. If you think your cat has any type of kidney or urinary tract problem you need to get the cat to a vet as soon as possibly to establish what is wrong with the cat and start treatment if you want to help the cat, I urge you not to wait. You can lose a cat in days.

    Good luck and glow for Queen Jack

  2. Hartz hairball remedy killed my cat nikita. She had been hacking up hairballs for a long time and being pretty young and out on my own for the first time i was naive enough to believe if it was medicine made for pets it should be healthy for pets i treated her with the medication as directed on the package and 2 weeks later kita was found dead on my bedroom floor.

  3. Okay so I took her to the vet and they said Jack had a massive reaction to flea bites (imagine my surprise to know that we have fleas! gross!) and though she’s eating, she’s not getting nutrients because of fleas. That was making her weak and desperately needing to lick concrete (feline pica). Plus the Hartz hairball stuff has acacia in it and that is a muscle relaxant (made it hard for her to hold her own weight).

    The doc gave Jack paradyne on the back of her head and it killed the fleas almost instantly. Jack also received a couple of shots as well as a pill. The doc told us to never buy any of the flea meds, sprays or hairball stuff again because it doesn’t work well and harms animals.

    Now my girl is doing better. Her skin has cleared up, she’s energetic and playful, and she’s very responsive. Generally, she’s a very happy cat now.

    I am definitely only ever going with a vet’s product recommendation!
