I just got this link from Gavre. She linked me to this site after I told her I had put a Hartz Flea collar on my cat to prevent him from picking up fleas from a dog I did a rescue on yesterday. Apparently, there are severe detrimental affects associated with this companies products. Mostly, the cats affected have suffered from skin irritations to poisoning. The pesticides used are not what one would expect with a product labled to be good for your cat and to help protect him from parasites. I thought something was wrong all day since Walter has been much more lethargic then ususal. I’m taking him to the vet tomorrow and dealing with the issue.

If I’m over reacting then let me over react instead of end up with a sick and dead cat. Other wise check out this website if you have cats and have used Hartz products before.

    Yeah, the vet clinic I worked at stopped giving Hartz products to
    pet owners and warned them about this; there’s been a far too high
    rate of side effects leading to sickness/death. Not sure how far
    any sort of agency has investigated this (I don’t even know what
    agency would have jurisdiction over animal medications…)
