Thank you to each of you for sharing your story and bringing attention to this issue. After reading each of your stories, My dogs really enjoy these but I just can’t take the chance with my fur babies lives. I do fear any edible product from China.
My 18 mos old puppy ate a Hartz Oinkies and broke out in hives! I didn’t realize they were made in China and will be taking them back to the store. I’m just glad it didn’t kill her!
We purchased a flea collar for my cat Bentley. Put it on last Friday. Took it off on Tuesday because he kept throwing up. Found him dead Saturday. Yea because of this flea collar my 4 year old Cat passed away. I can’t replace my Cat so what am I to do.
I too feel like an awful cat master. I’m all about natural healthy living, then I go and do something stupid like place Seargents hartz on my poor Whisper. Same conclusion, poison reaction. My vet only could recommend bathing her to remove toxin. But my iridiologist told me to give her some food grade diatomaceous earth, and sprinkle the powder on her fur to help fight toxins, and bath her with Dr Bonner’s Castile soap to get her PH balanced. And to feed her cold raw salmon, dark chicken, or sardines, all raw, with bones ( will not hurt her ) to get her some fish oil supplement as well. Then she should be back on track. Hope this helps in future cases of master failings.
Remember, we & all creatures all belong to a forgiving & healing God .
Admit our mistakes and He will bring healing 😀
My 4 month old puppy got a chemical burn from hartz flea collar. Luckily we found out about it and took her to the vet right away. The vet told us the burn had just started so it wasnt that bad. He even told us that one of the ingredients will cause seizures in dogs and that the packaging says avoid contact with skin but you’re supposed to put it on the dog’s neck?? Doesnt make any sense and I genuinely dont understand how hartz is still allowed to be selling all these product!s! I am really angry and upset. Not only was it painful for my pup, we had to spend $280 at the vet for it. Never use hartz flea collar on your pet, ever!!
Son gave our one year old golden retriever mix a Hartz Oinkies Pig Skin twist. After reading about dogs having seizures, I feel very lucky that our dog threw up the treat. I will have to be much more careful about what few treats we give her.
I gave my Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever vectra-3D for the first time and he died the next day. He was a healthy 6 year old dog when treated. I called my vet to let them know what happened they told me that they had all ready stoped using vectra-3D.
Today I bought this medicine to help are cat buddy with Flea’s and Tick’s. About 15 minutes later he started to act abnormal he was running and hissing at us and he was sneezing and shaking violently. We immediately wrapped up in a towel and gave him a bath to get it off of him he immediately calmed down and was back to normal. And at this time he is back to how he was before giving this medicine to him. Please whatever you do. Do not give this or put it on your animals do not please don’t. You will regret it. This product should not be sold in stores this company needs to be shut down. They don’t deserve to run a company
I bought a flea collar and my cat had it on for just a short min and he started having breathing problems they need to take off the market permantly
