I was under the assumption all that Hartz stuff was suppose to be taken off the market! These articles have been going on for well over a year warning against the stuff!

The problems with Hartz has been going on for many years. I would never use it and am surprised that retailers continue to carry those products.

Sorry about your cat, IHateHartz. Funny all the garbage that is "supposed" to help our pets is always making them sicker, yet we continue to see advertisements, and NO warning hints whatsoever unless we dig on the Internet for it.

Wonder where all the lawyers are? They could be making bajillion-gazillions in pet owner-consumer cases each and every day and actually do a public service at the same time! (Since true news journalism is DEAD and GONE, gool ol' lawyers are the only hope. How sad is that?)

I saw the product at the grocery store just yesterday. It's no wonder people still use it, despite the warnings -- at $16 for three treatments, it's a heckuva lot cheaper than the Revolution we use on our cats.

Lighting your pet on fire is cheaper still and has approximately the same results . . .

I bought Hartz Ultraguard for my 14 mo. old cat at a Safeway store (I could kick myself for doing that, rather than spending more money buying from Vet)about 2 days ago. She is full of life, always curious, always playing.... except I noticed starting a day ago, she was not eating and just lying around. Also she was shaking one of her legs, she has no arthritis nothing like that, she is the healthiest kitten.... I am scared now that this may be in connection with this Hartz Ultraguard. I have washed her neck and back down with liquid detergent and hope and pray she'll be o.k. Never again Hartz....

Default Flea treatments are so dangerous!!!

To quote my vet "I wouldn't put most of that garbage on my lawn, much less on my cat." ( )

There has got to be a good natural flea treatment somewhere!!
