My Pug

My dog was full of energy and happy as always. I gave him a shower using Hartz flea and tick shampoo on Saturday night. Sunday morning when we woke up he was not himself he wanted to just sleep, and it was like he was hurt his movements were weird like his legs weren’t working properly. This lasted for two days so far. He does seem to be improving but time will tell. Throw this product away. Shame on this company for selling something that is doing this to our fur babies

Chihuahua sick

I washed my 10 year old chihuahua with harts flea and tick shampoo right before we took her to the vet for her routine vaccinations. The very next day she had diarrhea and was very lethargic. I thought symptoms were related to her rabies shot. After a week she had gotten worse and had hives all over so we took her in for a re check. She was given a few medications for the allergic reaction and has since gotten better skin wise. However it is now 2 weeks later and she is still very lethargic, has hardly no appetite and looks like she is wasting away. We are really considering putting her down at this point. I looked up the shampoo and heard all the traumatic stories and now know we have all fallen victim as well.

Caused neurological paralysis

I had a healthy 3 year old female cat. I bathed her with Hartz Gold and she became paralyzed in the back legs in July of 2016. She was healthy and active until that time. She lived over 3 1/2 years dragging her back legs until five days ago her skin and bones body gave out on December 21, 2020 This product should be taken off the market and a huge lawsuit should be filed against the company. I’d gladly sign the petition How many pets have died or suffered like my Ki-kat did? I’m sure too many to count. I’ve submitted photos of how she was before She got paralyzed She had no muscle and was just bones when she passed. I want to remember her the way She used to be. She lived two years after the paralysis still eating and Purring and wanting to live until lately. My heart is broken. RIP My sweet girl

Little kittin

I had a kittin that died from flea treatment within a day I felt horrible for using it was years ago an always thought I had to do with this brand

Hartz flea shampoo

About a year ago I noticed that my 12 year old 6 pound terrier had fleas so I decided to purchase Hartz shampoo from a local grocery store. That was the biggest mistake I’ve made in my life. After I took my dog out of the bath, he immediately started whining and wheezing. I didn’t know what was wrong and soon after he started pooping uncontrollably and wasn’t able to stand up on his own. Thankfully, he got better after a few days and is still with me a year later but please never use hartz products on your pets!!!

Chemical burn?

I adopted an 8 year old cat. He has stayed indoors. He just turned 10. One day, he decided to dart out the door. It took a couple minutes but I caught him and took him inside. A couple days later, I noticed fleas. I purchased the Hartz flea collar. The following day, I checked to see if it was working. I noticed his skin was a little red. Thinking it was too tight (even though I could fit 2 fingers under it comfortably), I loosened it. Two days after that, I noticed missing fur and what appears to be a burn. I took it off and got a closer look. It is the beginning of a chemical burn. And some of his fur has fallen out. Never using Hartz again.
