If you have used any of these products on your pets you need to shampoo them asp if not sooner. Even if it has been several days since you have used the product I recommend to do it anyway. What do you have to lose besides your pet. Only use the blue dawn it is animal safe and it is what they use on oil slick victims.
After using this Ultra Guard Flea and Tick shampoo one time this Spring my dog developed uncontrollable itching and bald spots near as hind legs and in other parts of his body lost hair for no apparent reason I will never use any hartz product ever again!!!
Evidently this post was started in 2011 it’s now 2019 and people like me are still having to learn this horrible lesson the hard way. I bought sergeants flea drops and used on my 5 month old kittens. Well that night they seemed to be more hyperactive than normal at the time I didn’t realize that was the first symptom of a far worse reaction that all three kitties would have. First my Tigger got real lethargic. He wouldn’t eat or drink I had to use a large syringe to get water down him. It looked really bleak but somehow I nursed him through it. Then Micky starts in not eating and drinking. He ended up being the sickest. I actually bathed him even though it had been several days since I put the drops on them. Finally he started improving then the girl kitten seemed to have trouble walking and I couldn’t do nothing but cokes her into walking and gave her massages. It to a couple of weeks to get them back to normal. The worse part was they was so lethargic.
My cat Harry started having a seizure and began to hallucinate within six hours of applying the topical Hartz flea treatment for cats. I had to rush him to the vet as he was starting to become distressed while breathing and he couldn’t stand up or walk. He kept falling down. It was heartbreaking and scary to see him go through this ordeal. I do not recommend anyone use this product on their cat OR their dog. After informing a friend of what happened, she had told me that her dog had passed after applying the dog version of the Hartz topical flea treatment. This brand is dangerous and should be removed from the shelves completely. If your cat is showing any signs of distress after applying flea medication, promptly bathe them in dawn soap. This helps dilute the medication and prevent further absorption into the system, and get them to a vet right away for further treatment. My cat was administered fluids and given medication to help with the tremors. I am happy to report he has recovered but he almost didn’t make it once he began having respiratory issues. Pesky fleas can be an issue but please keep a close on your cat if you choose to use this product; but I advise against it!
used on my 8 an 9 yr old mixed-mini pin n weiner, instantly started scratching like crazy after bathing an hasnt stopped. appetite an energy are down, got me worried sick. gonna go see the vet asap…
I had 2 beautiful cats one 8 named Fishy and one 3 Sasha I used the flea treatment that u normally drop on the back of there neck and within a week my 8 year old fishy lost all feeling in his back legs stopped eating and drinking could no longer make it to the bathroom and died at home, then about 4 days later my 3 year old Sasha had the same symptoms lost all feeling in her back legs couldn’t make it to the bathroom so I brought her to the vet and the vet told me a normal healthy cat had the body temperature of 60-65 hers was 12 and the only way of saving her but not giving her back her full life span would have been a $3000 blood transfusion I unfortunately choose to put her down as she was suffering but she didn’t even make it through the process and passed on the table I told the vet what I had used on them both which was the Hartz flea medication and he said he had never heard of it I was so upset i thought somehow it was my fault and I had done something I will forever love and miss my fur babies.
Have 4 dogs, saw these treats at walmart and picked them up, gave them to my pups to occupy there time, First time trying these, after about a week all my dogs had the runs. They only eat royal canin, and blue buffalo wet. Vet says the treats caused them to have stomach irritation and the runs. In the trash they went…. And $200 for vet visit and medicine here we are.
I’ve used this on my dog it was something I just grabbed in the store just to have shampoo at home for my pups if needed. We ended up missing a grooming appointment due to me working, some I washed them myself 😫 worst thing I could have ever done both my babies were in the vet for 3 and 4 days (sick as a dog) didn’t think they would pull though but thank God they did but we had to shave them bold and treat a really bad skin rash on 80% of they body they hair still won’t grow in fully 😔😔 I feel so bad I won’t be anything else without researching it.
I used to use the oatmeal wash on my Jack Russell and ever since her skin has never been the same and I have a rash on my finger I can not get to go away and it itches like crazy just like her spots make her itch like crazy. It affected us both permanently. She is not the same dog anymore…. Breaks my heart to read so many stories of furbabies getting killed and hurt permanently buy a product that was only supposed to clean them. Something needs to be done!!
My dog got real sick rash all over her body. I got it at the neighborhood Wal Mart thank God she’s ok n I was wondering what was going on until I seen thing it happened right after the bath.
