Gave my dog, Biscuit, a 2 year old Boxer/Lab mix a bath with this product for the first time today, 06/28/17. Never used this product before. So wish I had looked up reviews and warnings before doing so. Within 15 mins she was running around flopping on her back and yelping like she was in pain and was just trying to rub it off her. She wouldn’t come to me and had a look about her like I had punished her! Finally after running around for 10 mins she laid down and I went to her. She is not right! She’s acting like she is traumatized. It’s been about 3 hours now and she’s thrown up 6 or 7 times. She’s shaking and twitching constantly. We’ve given her an additional bath using just regular shampoo and rinsed her thoroughly twice and she’s still thrown up twice more since that and still shaking. After reading some of these posts I really hope I didn’t just kill my dog!
There is a warning on the bottle that say some dogs may have sensitivity to this product and to use mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. Also it says gives strong warning about the soap runoff and rinse water being very dangerous. I thought this was just Hartz being careful. Nope! Their product is lethal!! People please: DO NOT USE HARTZ products!!
I’m blown away by how immediate the reaction was. She did drink some water a little while ago for the first time in 3 hrs so I’m hoping after a soap bath and several rinse downs she will be ok. I will be keeping a close eye on her the next 24-48 hrs and if she needs, taking her to the vet. People of Hartz should be ashamed to put a product this dangerous out there for the sake of profits. Disgusting!
