Hartz Mountain Corporation Poisoned hamsters with cedar bedding Secaucus New Jersey
Hartz indicated on their packaging that their red cedar bedding was safe for hamsters, so of course I trusted it and put it in my hamsters cage. Immediately the poor thing developed a rash! I went online and discovered that cedar is a known no-no for hamsters as it contains chemicals that they are very sensitive to.
Because of his rash, my hamster became stressed and developed wet tail, a potentially lethal disease that is characterized by diahrea, loss of appetite, ulcerated flesh, and eventual death. I have the little guy on antibiotics, neosporin, and activea to try and reverse the effects of this ordeal, but the outlook is uncertain.
I can't believe Hartz knowing marketed this poison to hamsters!!! It makes me furious that I trusted a company so blatantly uninterested in pet health.
