I put hartz ear mite medicine in my cats ears.. By the next day he stopped eating and then couldn’t get up. When he got up to use the litter box he started seizing. He suffered through the night until the vet opened up, I took him to the vet Monday 11-12_2018.. He had a fever of 104.9 and kept having seizures.. The vet has been working on him for 2 days now and this is the second night he has had to stay there.. I think hartz should pay my vet bills.. It is wrong this stuff is still on the shelf. I have never seen a cat ever do what happened to my baby boy. I thought he was going to die before the vet opened. Most horrible thing I have ever seen.. We are on a fixed income but my cat needed help.. I don’t know how I am going to pay for all this but he deserves a chance at life and I don’t care what it takes or costs.. Hartz how dare you..
I used flea powder for dogs on my carpet. I used on 2 throwrugs sparingly, taking my animals outside for 20 minutes and vacuuming and aired out house. The next morning my german shepherd cross fell off our bed hitting his head on the floor. He went down like a rock. My dad was a doctor, our home held his office. I have raised cats, dogs, horses etc. I know what a seizure looks like. It was not a seizure like I had ever seen. His left eye rolled back in his head, his left side became twisted and he could not walk. It was a neurological event definitely. He came out of it about 3 minutes and went outside and playef with our other dogs like it never happened. There is no doubt in my mind it was the flea powder. Just imagine if I had put it on him per the label! I shampooed and threw away all rugs and rewashed all bedding. He is 9. Never saw anything like that.
After using Hartz product both of my cats, one 7 years old, the other 5 years old suffered from seizures before they died. Zeus had become very bloated and both cats lost their appetite and wouldn’t drink any water. Zeus is in the picture.
My story is similar to the rest of the stories. Gave my 2 year old King Charles Cavalier one of these treats and she immediately started with diarrhea and vomiting. I researched the treat, as that was the only new thing introduced to her diet and was mortified and saddened to see all the incidents other pet owners have had. I was appalled they are still being sold in stores! Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can help my fur baby through this? She was up most of the night with diarrhea. Hoping these are taken off the shelves. I will be advising all pet owners I know NOT to purchase these treats.
Warning! I sprayed my 6 month old healthy cat with this product this morning. Within 1 hour he was dead. I called Hartz to report it and asked if this had happened before and was told they do not keep statistics. Do not use!
I am filled with regret. My two indoor cats got fleas – something I have not had to deal with in many years. I remembered using those white collars years ago so decided to go with what I knew.
My oldest, Casey, became quite ill within two days. The younger cat, Sekan, seemed fine. The next day, Casey was worse, and I noticed that Sekan seemed somewhat lethargic.
The light dawned, and I quickly removed the collars.
The next day, Casey was no better, so I took him to the vet, who confirmed that it was the collar – “they’re too strong and very bad for cats,” he said.
He examined Casey and drew blood. He concluded that Casey had been poisoned. He assured me that Casey would survive, but there were times over the preceding days when I thought I was going to lose him.
He is still lethargic. Sekan seems fine now. What an unnecessary mess!
I’m going to file a complaint with Hartz. This product should not be on the shelves.
Yesterday, I bought a Hartz collar for my cat. I adopted my cat a couple of days ago. She’s around 5 or 6 months old. And I didn’t know she was pregnant. It wasn’t even noticeable, she didn’t have any type of symptom or anything like that. So I put the collar on her, and today in the morning I found 6 fetus dead in my garage. My cat aborted all of her babies because of my fault, I feel so bad. I think I could have done something, but I didn’t know. I wasn’t sure. I feel so so so broken right now…
My border collie was 13 years old and it was end of September she got a but of dry skin. I had bought Hartz shampoo with oatmeal hoping to soothe her itch. The next day we moved into a 1 story house. As I’m starting to put things away I hear her making choking sounds then the 1st seizure started, I sat with her waiting for it to be over but as she started coming out of it she went right back in. They were so string she urinated a dedicated on herself. She couldn’t catch her breath. It was Sunday so off to emergency after hour hospital. The seizure didn’t stop as my daughter drove speeding threw Toledo. At the hospital they took her right back , 3 shots of valium and phenbarutal. Now at 4 hours after 1st seizure vet comes to talk to me. My girls temp was 110 plus( could read any higher) and she was still having seizures. Her head and eyes kept twitching and jerking. All these hours doctor said between fever and seizure IF she ever work up shed most likely be brain dead. Chances are she won’t wake. Even a younger dog couldn’t handle that much on their body. As the seizures kept going me and my daughter who grew up with sugar as a sister and best friend spent time with her as I had to make the hardest decision I EVER had to make in my life. Had to put her to rest. All because the chemicals meant for roachesants spiders,etc was in and on my dogs body. Thier was NO way to get it off her. The vet had to do a to screen and send it away for it to say reaction was to the shampoo and flea meds I put on her skin. I didn’t know it would do this to my baby. We had her creamated and had her paw prints done. She was healthy for her age. I miss and love her very much
Both of our Rat Terriers at these treats and were sick with diarrhea. I wanted to check it out to see if it might have been something else. I waited 30 days they were fine. I gave the the treats again and both soon suffer diarrhea. I will never buy these again. [email protected]
Today I noticed my cat had chemical burns from HARTZ Flea collar. All three of my fur babies had the collar on, thankfully it only affected him. Not saying I’m not devasted. I have no clue what to do, do I take him to the vet? Do I continue to clean and put Neosporin on the wounds? Thankfully it isn’t as bad as it could be. I just hate seeing my fur babies like this, it’s a shame. What this company does to our animals our loved ones. I wish more people knew about this brand. It isn’t FDA approved. I was already scared about the collar, but I figured why not give it a try. But now I know, Hartz is a no go. And they need to be sued.
