Almost lost my cat

In April of 2019 I was just starting a new job (so low on money) when a friend brought over her dog who little did I know had fleas. Once I realized we had fleas in the house, I bought Hartz thinking it was safe. I put it on my at the time very healthy and normal cat, Max and he immediately started running around and yeowling as if it was burning him and then dropped to the ground and wouldn’t move. I called the vet and they said to bathe him and bring him in asap. I bathed him and he became so lethargic that he let me scrub him down and I brought him to the vet. He had to be hospitalized and nearly died from kidney issues (thankfully my vet was amazing and saved him). I reported it to Hartz to get reimbursed for his $1300 medical bill and they sent me the forms (I had to call twice to get them) and I did everything they asked: A detailed bill from the vet along with a letter with the diagnosis that it was from the flea treatment from Hartz, the proof of purchase and the original box with the left over treatments still in it. After 2 months of calling weekly I finally got an answer. They wouldn’t reimburse me because THEIR vet after reviewing everything I submitted said it was in no way related to their flea treatment. I appealed it and still was denied. Max now after just being barely a year old will have to be on special meds and food for his kidneys for the rest of his life. We’ve had to go back to the vet several times due to kidney issues. It’s not ok. My heart is broken for him. Hartz did not care at all and only wants their money. Each time I had to call them, I was treated rudely by the people working there. DON’T buy any of their products ever
