Hartz- Poor Buddy

Today I bought this medicine to help are cat buddy with Flea’s and Tick’s. About 15 minutes later he started to act abnormal he was running and hissing at us and he was sneezing and shaking violently. We immediately wrapped up in a towel and gave him a bath to get it off of him he immediately calmed down and was back to normal. And at this time he is back to how he was before giving this medicine to him. Please whatever you do. Do not give this or put it on your animals do not please don’t. You will regret it. This product should not be sold in stores this company needs to be shut down. They don’t deserve to run a company

Hartz = serial killer

Last summer we lost several cats and thought it might be predators as we live in a rural area. This summer again we have lost another half dozen cats… but they died in the house or on the deck. Just keeled over and dead within minutes. Guess what? They don’t die in the winter because we are not using flea stuff at that time. Hartz is probably killing many more than is reported… because the cats go outside and never come back. We are heartbroken, they are our babies, our kids. We treasure them and Hartz obviously could care less. They relabel and away we go. I also think Walmart and the other retailers bear some responsibility. We were using Ultra Guard One Spot (methoprene). Also, the US needs to stop buying Chinese formulations of pet products. Whether tainted wheat gluten or flea stuff, the Chinese don’t care about human or pet lives. Life is cheap for them. We will go with natural treatments from now on.

Clueless about Hartz; Flea, tick and Cat killer?

Hi, I bought the Hartz Ultra Guard Plus flea and tick drops for two stray kittens I had found on the street. They’re around 12 weeks old. I had used Hartz products before no problem. I feel like an idiot for not doing my research as I had just purchased the Flea and Tick drops as the two brothers are infested with fleas and decided to try that.

After applying the drops i noticed the upbeat, always down for affection brother to be lethargic. To make matters worse after I finished applying the solution on both of them they escaped my view for some time and come to when I find them, it appears they’ve licked some of the solution off their backs, although not much as it looked dried.

Started doing my research and was horrified at all the people who lost their pets to these disgusting products. I am so concerned for my two babies. When I found the news, I washed both their mouths and gave them a Dawn dish soap bath. There’s some change in behavior, but the upbeat one seems unusually lethargic. The other brother is as he was before, which is a good sign.

I am worried that I’ll wake up with two dead cats! Is there anything else I can do besides wait? I can’t afford to stay up all night, but I don’t want to neglect them in case they have a reaction. I know some have escaped only with minor reactions but God forbid I wake up and they’re in worse condition.

I’m sorry to all those who lost their best friends to these disgusting products and I will be throwing away every Hartz product I own in the trash where it belongs.

I believe this product poisoned my cat.

I used the product on my carpet, and my cat became lethargic and would just hover over the water bowl and puked for two days. He’s an indoor cat so isn’t exposed to any potential outdoor chemicals. I sprayed this on my carpet and after drying I vacuumed. I had two cats and one dog, unfortunately my sweet cat benjamin got sick and his kidneys failed him. I know it was this product. It’s a cat killer. Now I have to shampoo my carpets so I don’t lose my other cat and dog. Benjamin was family, a void that can’t be filled without him. We are heart broken and I shouldve checked reviews before trying this evil poisoning product. Please dont Use this product. Benjamin will be missed for the rest of our lives. ❤️

Had a solvent / oil smell

I have been buying Oinkies for our 2 Cockapoos and my daughter’s toy poodle for years. Never had an issue before. Bought a 10 quantity bag from our local Drug Mart a few days ago. Usually my two are all over them but this time NO! Our one dog would not even touch it. Initially took it then left it on the floor and walked away. Our second dog, who eats anything…ate a bit of it then also left it. I thought it really odd so I went to the bag, reopened it and smelled. Woooooooooah…..each one had a solvent or oil type of smell. No wonder the dogs are saying nope. I know a few times I have gotten bags with coupons on the outside – instant dollar off – only to find they expired in late 2015. It’s 2017! So I am not sure if there is an expiration date or if Hartz even knows Drug Mart stores are selling really outdated product but I do know one thing….I will never buy another bag of Oinkies for either my dogs or my daughters. Hartz has lost my business because they don’t have a clue what is happening with their products. Typical corporate money making machines, caring less about our family members!
