Human poisoning

My name is Heather Mitchell. Friday I had my husband purchase the hartz ultra guard flea drops. I applied the drops just as the directions tube in between her shoulder blades. I made sure to wash my hands very well afterwards. I or my family did not touch our kitty Luna until the medicine had dried in her fur. All is well with my kitty and she is acting like her normal self. One of the ways she likes to show affection to me is she will walk up to and rub her face and body against my legs as pet her. She is a a very sweet kitty. That nite after she had her dinner, she did just that..came up to me rubbing her little body against my legs purring, so of course I pet her and give her love right back. All seems well so me and the family go to bed. The next morning I wake up and notice my ankles and feet are quite swollen, but I think nothing of it, maybe it’s the heat, even though we have an ac that works real well. As the day goes on the swelling gets worse, and I notice I now have a rash on my stomach. So I decided to to some research..What I find about this product horrified me. I hurry up and bath my kitty 2 times very well. And then I take a long bath myself and make sure my son and husband do as well. That night I try to sleep but by now my feet and ankles are so swollen that Im not comfortable in any way. The next morning I wake up and things are even worse. So my mother takes me to the hospital. As of right now I am on steroids and 2 different types of antihistamines. And I have to go back to the doctor in 2 days. I thank God that my 8 year old son did not have a reaction to this.. and my kitty is just fine. But I am in so much pain this is absolutely horrible. There is nothing else that I came in contact with other than the flea medicine. I will never use this product again.

  1. This product will kill small human babies! DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT! this product attacks the nervous system!

  2. I had a kitty almost die from those drops 2 years ago…she survived, but had medical issues therafter that took her life last month. She was only 5 years old. I contacted Publix, where I purchased them, and Hartz. Got no satisfaction from either. We should start a lawsuit & get this dangerous product banned. Hope you are doing better, get off steroids ASAP…almost worse for you… Sharon
