Hartz collar on my cat

It’s been about a week now since I first notice these almost looking like a raw burn around the neck .
Just came out of my vet’s office. He thinks we are in time and we will be able to save her God Bless…….after a shot, a week long treatment of cortizone and 2 week treatment of anti biotics we will know for sure.
I am appauled at all the post and pictures I have read and seen and yet HARTZ is still selling.

CAUTION: Read Entire Label; Then STOP

I love my buddy, Morty, and I can’t stand to see him being tortured by these little bugs. It’s only been a week but that’s 7 days too long as far as I’m concerned.

I’m so glad I stopped and read the entire label before using it on him. As I read on; the labeling warnings, hazards, and side effects scared me out of using it. I thought: if I can’t use this on myself then I won’t use it on him either. I already don’t give him tap water to drink because I won’t drink it, it’s toilet water. I’ll find another way. Going to get some unscented liquid soap and bathe him.

Don’t poison your buddy, people.

My Cats

Back when my grandchildren stayed with me some 15 to 17 years ago I had two indoor female cats. Well using the drops on the neck the larger of the two just lay at the end of my bed for quite sometime, unable to eat and real lethargic. The smaller one was skiddish and scared of most people anyway (besides me), but she was a rescue from the street. I kind of overlooked her hiding so much as she did it often. Now all these years later I have a beautiful white male with blue eyes (which change 3 other colors depending on his mood), he is also deaf. The drops and the Ultra Guard collar (twice) make his pupils dilate and he acts scared to death of me. He is the biggest baby I have ever had, wanting his front paws rubbed continually and on top of me always. The deaf cats will do this for security but he was held and babied from the beginning. I am scared to ever try them again and will start using the mint oil after he is bathed. I just thought I should look it up since this is the 2nd time the collar has done this to his neurological system. Never again as my cats are my family!!
