was the flea collar the problem?

Recently I had to take my cat to the vet because he stayed out overnight and when he came back I could tell something was very wrong. He wasn’t able to walk straight and barely able to stand up. I noticed that he could put pressure on one of his back legs but could still barely stand on it when I let him out the day before he was completely fine and usually he loves to play and if you try to scratch his belly he’s going to be clawing at you. When I brought him inside he immediately just laid down and allowed me to rub all over him with no response. He wasn’t shaking and didn’t seem out of breath. I took him to the vet and they told me the flea collar was the problem but I was surprised it could get that bad in the 12hours he was gone and he’s had the collar on for weeks. This happened yesterday and today he’s about 80% better just slightly off balance. I would really love some input from someone who has had side effects from the collars before I am more concerned that this may have been something that he had eaten or was bitten by since it happened so quickly.

Hartz Petition!

Hi, if you’re on this site, it’s because you care about your pets. If you’re reading this post, it is because you share something in common with me; The dislike of Hartz products!

Like most people, I have used a Hartz line product and its side effects nearly killed my cat. After reading some of the more serious cases reported due the lack of respect of Hartz, I consider my cat lucky. Even though, she needed serious medical attention because she was very dehydrated and had lost so much weight because her appetite decreased, my 6 year old cat survived.

To show Hartz that they cannot get away with this, please read and sign my petition that I have started on the link below.
