Flea Collar

I posted a picture of my kitty on Facebook and said that I was very worried about him he’s acting very lethargic and is not purring, barley eating and cuddling which is very odd he is the world’s best cuddler and purrr machine everybody of course started asking questions. I told them the only difference was the flea collar. I said it’s just one of the cheap ones from harts immediately people started chiming in take it off. And then someone sent me the link to here. I am very glad I have found this information. I have since removed it I just hope it’s not too late. He is still acting very lethargic and not himself. I will keep you posted.

Hartz flea meds

I used Hartz Flea drops on my cats and shortly after once of my cats started scratching at the application spot and lost all her hair there, she itched it so much it bled and scabbed up. It took us about 2 years to get her to stop itching that spot and now she has a scar where there(a bald circle on her back).

Melvin the cat

Melvin my 5 year old cat had a flea collar on for a short period of time he became lethargic and was hiding he was was urinating and super skinny he passed away the day before i could get him in to the vet, (i also had another kitten (5 months) that passed away about a week in to the Melvin wearing the collar he used to lick the older cats fur, I’m not sure if this had any thing to do with it. )

McClure

Our 2 bigger dogs, one black Lab the other Hound were in need of a bath before we applied flea medicine from a trusted brand. My husband was going to get flea shampoo from a local drug store but I wanted to get from the pet store. He went ahead and washed both dogs thoroughly with the drug store shampoo. The Hound was in his bed after the bath and his head was shaking back and forth like he’s saying “no” my husband thought he was having a seizure! We were all scared and couldn’t figure out what was wrong, we had taken both dogs out to play before the bath and thought maybe they were exhausted. The Hound did that for a while and then we encouraged him to lay down and rest. The Lab went to the back porch like she does when she has to go out, was acting like she was going to vomit and sure enough she did. When I saw the bottle of flea shampoo was Hartz brand I reminded my husband of a friend we knew years back who had a picture of his dog at work that said ” Hartz Kills” .
The dogs are lethargic the next day but I think they will be ok. I hope!

Flea drops

This Hartz junk has been going on for over 30 years. I had gotten some to put on my 3 dogs at the time and not 5 minutes later they all started throwing up. Had to get the people next door help me wash them all down to get it off of them but they still were sick. Hartz was no help at all…I sent them an email about what happened and they said take my dogs to the pound…when I am able to get to a store and see this junk…I want to throw everything off the counters. This stuff is a killer. Anything with Hartz name on it needs to go in the trash. Please don’t buy there chew bones or toys…

Poodle Mix patchy hair loss

I used Hartz Flea Shampoo on my poodle mix now has hair loss and red sores. This product is poison!!!! I’m overwhelmed with guilt that I used this product on my dog.

Delusional puppy

My 4.5 month old puppy had flea problems. I followed the flea and tick treatment as directed for his age and weight. Almost immediately he started to whine. I watched him for 10 minutes and checked his skin, no redness, but he was clearly unhappy. I decided to wash him. As I was getting things ready, not even 2 minutes later, he started losing his balance while walking, played on his side and his eyes rolled back. I freaked out and immediately got him cleaned and awake. Gave him water and food. Right now we are 2 hours later and he is still dizzy but is up and moving around again. I just realized the shampoo is a Hartz product as well so we will be giving him another bath shortly with Dawn Dish soap as recommended by the vet. I’m scared for my puppy… the 24 hour hotline provided on the packaging says no one is in office…

Fluffanutters the Cat

I used the flea medicine by the brand Hartz on my 7 year old cat, a week later she started to hide around my house and I could smell her Oder. She finally came out of her hiding spot and she looked so ill and skinny and she started meowing non stop, I knew she was passing and she wanted to let me know as well. I spent her last few moments holding her and telling her that I’m sorry.
