Hartz Is Killing Us

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

Hey everyone. I am sure most of you know by now that one of our catster members has passed on, and it may be due to the use of a Hartz Flea Collar.

Although the cause of her death is not definite, we still need to educate ourselves on the dangers of Hartz and other OTC flea products. We also need to be aware that these products have caused the deaths of many beloved pets.

That's odd,I've been using Hartz flea and tick products on Amber for years and we've had no problems.
I hope we figure out the problem soon!.
Best of luck,Amber.

I am so sorry! We had a cat named Fritz years ago that became extremely ill after we put a Hartz collar on her. She nearly died from the reaction. When our Vet saw her he freaked out that we had Hatrz collars on our 3 cats, Fritz was the only one who got ill but he told us that he had seen deaths from Hartz products before and banned the use of their products with our pets. This was in 1978! Now if he knew back then that cats were dieing from Hartz products, why are they still on the market? Some cats aren't affected by these products at all, but how do you know if your's won't be? Such an awful chance to take. Maggie Masy gets very ill if someone in our area sprays their lawn or plants outside and we have a window open. I personally don't think chemicals and cats mix well at all so I keep them as far away from my pets as possible.

Please be careful!
