My name is Josh.  I’ve owned and operated since November 2002. In June of 2009, Dani from AgainstHartz joined to help us continue in the fight against over-the-counter flea and tick products. The site was created shortly after my wife’s and my cat, Riley, fell victims to Hartz Advanced Care Flea and Tick drops.  We nearly lost our little friend, but thanks to our vigilant vet, he is still with us today. I found very few resources on the Web when Riley was affected by Hartz’s poison, so I started this Website to help others find information and to provide victims with a voice so their stories can be heard.

The purpose of this site is to raise awareness and provide a one-stop website where consumers and victims can find information on the lethal Hartz Advanced Care and other over-the-counter flea and tick drops. It is up to us to get these products off the shelves! There are thousands of us who have paid unnecessary vet bills. I urge you to read the stories that have been submitted to since 2002. You can submit your own news or story by registering at  We will review and post your story as quickly as possible.  Please come back to read updates and find new user-submitted stories, comments, helpful links and alternative pet products to keep your four-legged family members healthy and happy!

Please send us any stories, links or transcribed correspondences from Hartz or any other sources. With your permission, we will post them on this site. Please help us in this venture. If you have any questions or would like to advertise on this site, please contact us.

If you want to help us my efforts, please spread the word about the dangers of Hartz products. Tell everyone you know and tell them to tell everyone they know. Post comments in the ‘pets’ section of your local Contact all of your local media outlets.
