Hartz : Just when you think your helping your bestfriend.. Your actually hurting your lovable animal. Internet Nationwide
Just when you think your helping your bestfriend, your not.
My name is Sarah, I have a tri colored pembroke welsh corgi. He is 8 months old, his name is Todd. He's such a character. Not a day goes by that he doesn't put a smile on me and my partners face. He's such a great company, he's our bestfriend. I don't know what I would do if he hadn't came into my life.
When you have a lovable animal such as Todd, you tend to get very attached because you love them as if they were your own. You want to take care of them an do the best thing you can for them. Such as play with them, bathe them, give them tons of love, even share your own bed with them instead of giving them their own. Most importantly though, you want to protect them, like teaching them right from wrong so they'll stay out of trouble. But one thing you can't teach them that's all on your shoulders is ticks and fleas. Nobody wants to see their bestfriend miserable itching themselves all the time, just suffering.. It's sad. When this does happen though, you want to take care of the situation to stop the misery. Therefore you go out and buy whatever flea medicine, powder, dog soap, anything you can find that you think would be suitable to help your animal. They say some are better then others, prices make a difference, but really that's not the truth. What actually matters is the stuff your actually putting on them, and so this is where the story begins.
For the past few week now, Todd's been having some problems with fleas. I have gave him a few baths and frontline ; nothing worked they just kept coming back. So today me and my partner decided to go to walmart and get some powder to put on the floor too help kill whatever wasn't on Todd off and get some flea spray. As we were there deciding on a brand, we tried to pick the best to fit our situation. We ended up going with Hartz flea and tick spray along with the powder to put on the floor. We heard in the past it was a good brand to use for your animal, but what we did not know is that we were being lied to and the ones that thought it was a good brand were just lucky. Here Hartz has actually killed/poisoned a lot of pets because of there extra chemical.
We drove home, took Todd outside to play to get him a little bit tired so he'd be calm whenever we were putting the spray on him. He did so good, sat there all calm letting us help with the fleas; so we thought. We never put two and two together until we went upstairs to check on him and realized he didn't look to good and was drooling badly on both sides of the mouth. Then we realized that this had to have started when we first started putting the spray on him and that's why he was so calm Because normally he's stubborn. Imediantly I got online and googled reviews on the hartz flea and tick spray for dogs, this is the moment I realized my bestfriend could be in danger. I found this website called www.hartzvictims.com that had others from around the world posting their stories about what's happened to them when using products from hartz, it wasn't good. Almost all the post explained that they thought they were helping their animal but then realized they were only hurting their animal because they started to drool, have seizures, ect. and almost all led to death. Me and my partner immediately realized we had to do something and rushed Todd to get a bath to get the spray off him the best we could. We were so worried.
Not too long after, Todd started to perk up again after his bath and getting some fluids in him along with food too. It took a little while, but he turned out to be perfectly okay. We just happen to be one of the lucky ones though, not all other animals that have had this put on them have survived. It's just cruel to see that this company basically only cares about money instead of the animal. Put a stop to this, spread the world. One more life taken is one too many.
