Just an update…Hartz has agreed to refund for the collars and pay half of my vert bill. I could have held out for more but decided that I just didn’t have the fight in me.
But they do have a department that deals with claims and they were pretty quick to pay me off, so if your animal has been harmed, even temporarily, you can make a claim. Don’t throw the product away. I wrapped the collars up in a plastic bag. They will ask you to send the product back.
So sorry for all going through this. It was a horrible experience and I’m just glad that my Casey survived.
All of our babies died because of Hartz! We had 2 cats and 1 Chihuahua. Because they weighed about the same, we gave them Hartz Ultraguard Pro (for cats & kittens 12 weeks and older) – this was on January 7th, 2019. We were very concerned that the dosage called for one whole vial per pet, so we gave our 1 cat and chihuahau THREE drops, and our other cat ONE drop since she’s more skinny. Not even 1/4 of one vial was used on all 3 of them. On January 16th, our cat who got 3 drops had to be put down. On January 17th, our chihuahua died minutes after I got him to the vet. And on January 26th, our other cat passed away here at home after a long night of suffering. These drops were the ONLY thing different that we did with our babies. How is this still being sold?!?!?
This morning started like any other, until i put hartz flea drops on my dog and my cat. Within an hour my kitty, who wasn’t quite 2 years old, had dropped dead. It happened so quickly i never saw any symptoms, and didn’t have a chance to react. My heart is broken. How could they sell this when it is so deadly? My furbaby was so lively, healthy and strong. And some stupid $5 product took him from me. It’s not right and it’s not fair.
