Oy, these products should be taken off the market.

posted 6 years ago

Waste of money. Toxic to animals as well as people. EPA warns against using this kind of product due to the pesticides in it. Especially around children !!

Pros: None

Cons: Toxic, to you and your pet !

Can kill your cat!!

posted 6 years ago

This product as well as any Hartz topical flea preventative should be taken off the market and destroyed!!!

It does not work very well as a flea preventative, but instead may be fatal to your cat! It is not just a side affect of a few random cats. These products cause skin irritation, hypersalivation, neurological disrupt (mainly seizures, but may include stumbling, twitching, stupor and comatose), acute renal failure and death (which may or may not be agonizingly prolonged)

I have seen so many of my neighbors, friends and family lose cats due to Hartz. And guess what! The company knows. They pay tons in damages, but still put it on the market, beacuse despite the payouts to the bereaved, they still make money on the product since not everyone will seek justice.

Never have I seen these reactions with Frontline or Advantage (NOT Advantix - which can do the same to cats but is specifically not labelled for them).

I despise this company's ethics in this. I grew up using Hartz products, flea collars, shampoos and brushes, but never again! They will not see another dime.

Oh and The brand "Zodiac" is another dangerous product put out by Hartz! I guess they were getting too much bad press under the Hartz label.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Dangerous. Lethal potential. Does not work well against fleas anyway.

Avoid!!!!!

posted 7 years ago

I stay away from all of the Hartz flea treatments - I know of several cats who took terribly ill after this product was used on them, and two of the cats died, even with vet care after. I cannot say that it will happen in all cases of Hartz flea product use, but I can say that I personally would never take the risk of using it on my own cats under any circumstances.

Pros: None

Cons: Dangerous

Useless & not safe

posted 5 years ago

This company's flea control products are notorious for making cats & dogs sick, or worse. When discussing fleas with the vet I was told the only times they see adverse affects from flea-control products are when people use this brand & the other popular over-the-counter brand. If/when I have flea problems I'll buy what the vet recommends, I'll NEVER use anything made by this or that other company. It's dangerous, really.

Pros: no pros

Cons: too many
