Pup died after using this product

We used this on our chug who was 6 months old. It said 12 weeks or older on the bottle. Within a day after his bath he died. He started foaming then when we called our vet wrote scheduled an appointment for an hour later but it was too late. He died at home in my husbands arms. Our 2 yr old daughter is heart broken. His step brothers miss him and cry. I shouldn’t have never bought this product.


We bought a shelter puppy at the end of July. He is a mix breed of Hound,Lab and who knows what else. He was born on May 13th so he is just shy of 6 months now. My kids have wanted a dog for years and we finally gave in, only to have issues with him. Had to take him to the vet right away he had every kind of worm a puppy can get. After that was cleared he received his shots along with Sentinel and Heartguard around the 2rd of August. Around the 10 th of September, we noticed he had starting shaking his head in an up and down motion, sometimes falling over in the process.Thinking it might just be a puppy thing we didn’t think much of it, but it has continued. So we looked online and thought maybe the flea medicine was to blame so this time we just gave him heart-guard. Still didn’t make a difference. Took him back to the vet to have his ears checked, they were fine. So they did blood work, all was good besides his Phosphorus levels were a little high. Told me to check his food and make sure no recalls or issues with the lot number. Did all that, everything was good. So now he is on Antibiotics for 14 days to see if that will help. He is still doing the head shake. Started looking into everything we have used on him, came across the Hartz post..but we didnt use the flea and tick. We used Extra Gentle, soothing oatmeal..could this be the reason?

I bathed my lil sweety with this and she became very ill. We didn’t realize it at first and almost took her in to have her put down. It absolutely killed me to see her going through this. We waited a few days and she slowly started acting like herself again . She has gained a tumor on her back and is still having a hard time.using her back legs. I’m just glad we didn’t have her put down. Everybody please stop using this product

All products are potentially harmful

Why do you single out Hartz? You do understand that flea and tick meds use a very powerful and potent pesticide right? And it goes INTO your pet’s bloodstream. Wow. I don’t use Hartz. I don’t use frontline. Or trifexis or whatever other nasty shit our corporate lords command us to use. Jesus Christ. Aren’t we overdue for a mass extinction?? When will evolution finally kickstart to weed out the stupid so we can advance as a civilization? Fuck this website and you stupid people

I can not believe I just found this website!!! My story is the same as everyone else’s. Our cat has been seriously burned by his hartz flea collar. This is a joke! This site was created in 2002 u are telling me this is 2019 and just happened to our cat, nothing has been done to them? I am on board to do whatever to make them stop selling this crap!! They need to be hit in their wallet to make them hurt the way our baby is hurting. Also what’s up w vets saying they can’t speculate or say for sure that caused the burn?? BULLSHIT!!!!
