We lost our dog a few months ago, a healthy 12 year old pitbull. We qere bathing him in this and he had a grand siezure and it was all downhill from there. Vet couldn’t figure it out and we had to put him down. I didn’t know about this until it was too late! Im so mad!
So my dog after using the shampoo his hair started falling off he’s been having seizures a lot of itching cuz he has a lot of red spots all over him and he’s been shaking a lot after having a seizure
Our german shephard was healthy and happy we had minor flea problem so we got the hartz ultra gaurd as usual and the product seemed to work well and the next couple days he looked like he wasnt feeling well and looked like he was in a trance and it was hard for him to breathe. It was too late to take him in that afternoon so we decided to take him in the morning to the vet and when we got up around 10am was about to take him to the vet and he had already passed that has been about 3 weeks ago.
I used the Harts flee shampoo weekly in 2015 on my pitty Baby on June 30th she started having violent seizures 1 after the other after the other, took her to er vet and they couldn’t figure out why. After 3 months she’s couldn’t walk well and the seizure meds made it worse. On November 7th 2015 I had to do 1 of the hardest things in my life and that was let her go. I hope they take this off th market!!!!
Our 9yr old Boxer “Bella” was a healthy, very active dog her entire life since a puppy. Never had any sickness or health complications of any sort. Well….that changed for the worst on Wednesday October 3rd, 2018! On that day, my girlfriend and I applied AS DIRECTED the Hartz Ultragaurd Flea drops to her back around 7 oclock PM after a bath. The very next night 24hrs later, Bella had a Massive Siezure for the FIRST TIME EVER in her life. And it lasted every bit of 5 minutes watching her tremble and shake uncontrollably, foaming out of her mouth, and breathing heavier than I had ever heard any dog breathe! Upon a Google search on seizures in dogs, i did not worry a great deal considering her age and statistics saying that it is common in a senior aged boxer to occasionally have a seizure every 6 months or so……then as I continued my research, Bella started seizing again, this time got worse with her convulsions and breathing, still lasting 5+minutes until it ended. So, seizures continued non stop with only 5-15 minutes in between until the next one started. By the end of Thursday, Bella had lost control of her bowels, vision, and motor skills completely! And the WORST is that she didn’t even respond to her name any longer. At this point, Bella has suffered from irreversible brain damage and was stuck in a vegetated state all while continuing having severe, painstaking seizures. She was suffering emmensily all while we stood there helpless and devastated watching our baby girl DIE SLOWLY! So to get on with the end of all this, we had Bella euthanized and creamated on Saturday Morning the 6th. In two days, a perfectly healthy, active boxer goes from herself, into a brain dead vegetable that had over 20 seizures within a 48hr period, which ultimately directly caused her death! We chose to put her down considering the state she was in, the drops took EVERYTHING but her ability to breathe. So I can’t say Hartz murdered Bella, but it’s a FACT that Hartz Ultragaurd Flea drops POISONED her, CONFISCATED her from us to the point where I was left with two options…..let her suffer emmensily for ever, or relieve her pain ONLY BY EUTHANIZATION!!!
R.I.P. Bella. Mommy and Daddy will promise to seek justice for you the best way we can baby. And it starts by ADVISING ALL PET OWNERS TO STAY FAR AWAY FROM THE HARTZ CORPORATION!! They are Murderers and choose to do nothing about thier products! It’s ALL POISON!
My cat is dead because of these people n their products im very angry/sad this will not be long i want everybody to call and SUE hatz because other animals are dying and we need to stop it.
I got my dog a flea collar the day before Thanksgiving 2015 and by the morning he was coughing so bad I removed the collar. The coughing subsided but he began to get sicker and sicker. He never got better, by February, he couldn’t walk, if you touched him he scream like he was on fire and on February 10th he died and they have no idea what killed him, I know from what I have read and seen it was the Hartz’s products. I reached out to them, no answer, I a hotline number on their website and they didn’t help at all. I truly believe their product killed my dog and they don’t even answer your emails. They are an awful animal killing company.
HORRIBLE! I have an English Bulldog (1yr 4months old). He loves to chew on bully sticks. I saw the Pig Skin Twists at Smart & Final and thought he would probably love this treat. Ingredients just said PIG SKINS and it says highly digestible on the front. Didn’t even think to look where it was made 🙁 BUT it is made in China. Opened the bag and it smelled bad (chemical like)… However, I brushed it off thinking “how are Pigskins suppose to smell anyway.” (Plus, I purchased it at Smart & Final…right?) I gave one to my dog who took a smell and left it on the floor (highly unusual for my dog who loves to eat). Against my better judgement… I picked it up and held it out for him to remind him it was a treat… here, it’s a treat for you! Took him a few smells and checking it out before he finally took it an started chewing on it. He ended up eating the whole thing.
Later that evening when we were going to bed I thought I noticed him twitch or do this head bobble thing (He has only done this once before after he got eye surgery & had an allergic reaction to something). Next morning I wake up super early to my dog having “head tremors” or also known as Idiopathic Head Tremors. He continued to have head tremors spread out through the day. The only thing DIFFERENT that I gave him to eat was the Pig Skin Twist. I looked the treats up online and found all these horrible reviews on the company and product. I knew it had to be the Pigskins causing the head tremors. I took him to the vet. The vet checked him and was not sure that it was the pigskin treat that caused this… because Bulldogs are known to get head tremors. HOWEVER, by the 3rd day the head tremors were gone and he has not had once since. I believe they went away once the treat and toxins had passed through him. 100% these treats caused him some sort of trauma that brought on the head tremors (probably allergic to the toxins in the treat).
I used this Hartz Ultra Guard. Tuesday Sept 18th 2018. She threw up two hours later. I found out about this lawsuit that night. It’s Thursday the 20th she won’t eat or drink all day . I’m pissed. I got it at Walmart.
HARTZ IS THE REASON FOR MR. WHISKERS’S DEATH!!!! HE STOPPED EATING, LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT, VOMITED MORE FREQUENTLY, AND COULDN’T EVEN WALK OR GO TO THE BATHROOM ANYMORE!!!! WE TRIED TO GET HIM INTO THE HUMANE SOCIETY, BUT THEY COULDN’T DO ANYTHING TO GET HIM INTO A FOSTER HOME, BECAUSE THEY WERE BOOKED!!!! WE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO PUT HIM DOWN YESTERDAY!!!! I’M SO ANGRY I WANT THIS COMPANY PERMANENTLY SHUT DOWN!!!!
