My Friend is dead.. Miss Kitty died because I put Hartz ONESPOT flea treatment on her.. Miss Kitty trusted me and now she is dead.. I can’t stop crying.. the product say’s it safe and effective :(…. I am lost
Gave my 35 lb Jack-a-Poo the Hartz bacon dental chew for dogs over 50 lb . After 30 seconds of chewing, I realized my dog was swallowing plastic shards. This expensive chew toy is dangerous and could easily kill a dog. What kind of people would knowingly put this on the market. Outrageous.
We bought Kodiac flea and tick drops, at the pet store, because it costs so much from the Vet. Vets charge for the visit and then also for the drops.
Maybe the Vets should look at the whole picture and change the way they help clients protect their pets from these common problems, but then again they would lose business.
These stories are heart-wrenching.
I have both dogs and cats and I have used Zodiac products for years with no ill effects. I guess I will count myself and my pets as lucky to have not experienced such tradegy. However, taking the chance to have this happen just once is not something I want to risk. I could not bear it. I may use the house spray before we go out for the day (we=me and my dogs) but I will need to review our flea fighting strategy otherwise.
My heart goes out to all of you who have suffered through this ordeal.
I split one tube of Hartz pro flea drops between my two cats on the evening of 09/28/17. The next day my mama cat greeted me when I returned home about 2 pm shivering and her eyes out of control. I realized she was seizing and took her right to the vet. There I was informed it was from the flea drops. I am waiting this am 09/30 to see if she will live or die. I came back home to look for my other cat to find he had died and flies were gathering. I am heartbroken.
I applied this to my little buddy thinking I’d get rid of the fleas since I’m allergic to them… Roughly an hour after putting it on him he was running through the apartment hissing with a really nasty looking mangy spot of fur after trying to calm him down to look at it all he did was hiss and claw/bite me.. he’s never done this I took that as a sign and grabbed him and washed it all off which after the initial shock of the water wore off he stood under the water and willingly let me give him a bath… He’s currently sleeping on my lap thankfully acting normal but to think I could of killed him from this product disgusts me how are they allowed to sell this. I have emailed the company but doubt I’ll receive a response..
I bought a package of HARTZ FLEA TREATMENT strictly for CATS. I followed the instructions, AS DIRECTED.
I didn’t know, trying to PREVENT Fleas, & doing The RIGHT THING
I applied ONE treatment, to my adult cat.
Nearly a half hour later, I checked on her… She was panting! I didnt think anything of it at FIRST (Thought she was playing too hard, with my OTHER CAT)
About 20 mins later, I checked on her… At THIS point, not ONLY was she panting… NOW, she was seizing uncontrollably, panting, and was trying to run away from it.
She ran, & hid in the closet… I went to check on her, NOW… She was panting, seizing, NOW.. her eyes were GLOSSY, & when i tried handling her. She was VICIOUS (Shes EXTREMELY friendly)
I was concerned, picked up my phone and called the vet!
The vet told me, to wash her in DAWN DISH SOAP, then IMMEDIATELY bring her to the ER VETS (Since it was AFTER normal vet buisness hours) We RUSHED her to the nearest Er VET, which is an HOUR away.
The ENTIRE ride, she shook uncontrollably, panting & NOW vomiting!
About 2 min from the vet, she COLLAPSED. .. Then went SILENT!
I was crying, freaking out & screaming “PLEASE DONT TAKE HER TOO!
(Ive lost my Dog, my Dad, & relationship of 5 years ALL THIS YEAR) i couldnt BEGIN to imagine losing her TOO!
My boy friend, who drove me, RUSHED HER inside (so regained my composure, & had a cigarette)
After coming in, waiting for what felt like FOREVER…. The vet came in, and said
“Jordan, you are LUCKY you got here when you DID, we NEARLY lost her! ”
Sobbing, i said “Is she OK?”
The vet said “Luckily, YES… We were able to stabilize her breathing with a breathing tube, we gave her a shot to help with the seizures, & she started breathing on her own again, luckily FAIR QUICKLY ”
They watched her, for about 2 hours…
After what felt like FOREVER, the vet came out… Handed me my kitty cat, explained her discharge instructions , & sent her home with medicine
The ver bill, was $225! I had to chose, “Do I pay my ELECTRIC BILL, to AVOID disconnection?”
OR do i pay the $225, to the Vets, who JUST SAVED MY CATS LIFE!
The toughest decision yet, I HAD to pay the $225
I ABSOLUTELY WANT/NEED to be reimbursed, at least JUST for vet costs
NOTHING I did was wrong, she DID NOT lick it, the reaction, all through the skin.. NEARLY KILLED HER
THE VETS… referred me, to CONTACT HARTZ,
Does ANYBODY reading this, KNOW WHO TO CALL.. EMAIL. or contact information to file a law suit, or reimbursement!
My name is Jordan Peace, from Rochester NH!

I had 2 dogs since they were about maybe 2 weeks old. Quicky Lube was 17 when passed, Rocky Road was 14 when he passed. I would use hartzs shampoo just about all there life. Quicky started to grow some huge mass on side of his body. I took to get and they did all kinds of test nothing was wrong with him. Rocky started looking fur in spots(we though it was anxiety) and started having these rash looking red soars. So we went to oatmeal shampoo they made. Quickys lump would get bigger and bigger so I would pay to bring him to the vet over and over to see if he was in any danger. Couldn’t understand why my dogs were this way. Then we got Sylvia Crybaby and I bathed her and she started bitting her self so much and she never has done that. So I talked to a few vets and they asked what I was using I told them they told me to STOP and use selsun blue medicated. Well by the time we realized it was the shampoo all this time it was too late for the boys.
Three weeks ago my sister in law purchase this shampoo for her two year old Doberman Betty… Just days after she developed an itch and welts at the base of her tail which turned into red bumps.
The bumps became worse and opened like sores. She took her to the vet where she was told she was having a reaction to the Hartz shampoo… They gave Betty and antibiotic and a cortisone shot…
Betty’s symptoms got worse and the sores spread to her entire body and the inside of her eyelids…. We took her to another vet who took a blood test and gave her stuff to try and heal the open sores…
48 hours later… This morning my sister in law came downstairs to find that Betty has passed away… Her blood test came back normal and what the determiniton is that she had a reaction to the shampoo which cause her a massive loss of protein and nothing could have stopped this progression.
The reason why I am posting this for her is because we used the same shampoo on our Pomeranian Nino and her died of respiratory failure just hours after… Hartz need to be held accountable for this product. A simple disclaimer that puts the blame on the owners doesn’t cut it for me…
Hartz took another life Monday afternoon. My mother put Hartz flea and tick killer on our 1yr 4mo old blue heeler Molly on Sunday. She was fine until the next afternoon while my father was playing fetch with her she jumped to catch the stick, had tremors and died within 2 minutes. Thanks for failing us FDA. She was the BEST dog.
