Hartz Ultra Guard Pro – too close for comfort!

Oh my goodness, I, like everyone else on this website, cannot believe this is happening.  Why is this stuff still on the market??  If Hartz was truly trying to help cats and owners, they would fess up to their mistakes and pull their products.

Yesterday morning, I put Hartz Ultra Guard Pro Flea and Tick Drops on my 5yr old cat.  Let me also say that she is my best friend.  I cherish the time we spend together and always welcome her to company.  So, a few hours after the application, I noticed that she was strangely kicking/shaking her back feet.  It almost looked like it hurt for her to stand on her back feet.  She is also vehemently licking her back paws.  I just thought that she had scratched her neck with her back feet and gotten some of the Hartz (evilness) on her back feet – so I though she was just trying to get it off.

THANKFULLY, she has not had any seizures or problems with balance, so I think she will get over it.  I’ve washed her neck a couple of times with plain water, but I’m contemplating whether to take her to the vet.  I’m in nursing school and I really don’t have the money to take her to the vet.

Please, pass this message along to other pet owners.  Don’t take chances with the cheapy flea stuff.  DO NOT USE HARTZ!!!
