Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?
I have just returned from rushing across town to pick up my sister and 2 of her cats, Tanya and Kitty, and taking them to the Emergency Animal Hospital. Tanya and Kitty suffered severe toxic reactions after being treated with Hartz Mountain's One Spot Flea & Tick Product.

They began having seizures and foaming at the mouth. My sister quickly bathed both of them to wash off as much of the chemical that had not absorbed and was waiting for me to transport them across town to the animal hospital. Both of these precious babies are still at the hospital hooked to IV valium drips while the vets work on flushing the toxins from their little systems.

The vet let us know this is not an uncommon reaction in pets who've been treated with Hartz Mountain Flea & Tick Products. They average two cases each weekend and field about a dozen calls regarding this same situation.

I would think Hartz Mountain is aware of this dangerous reaction that cats and dogs suffer from using these Flea & Tick products; yet, they continue to market and sell them to an unsuspecting public.

My sister is going through worlds of guilt over having exposed her precious babies to this uncalled for situation.

This is also going to be an expensive treatment. My sister is a single parent and does not receive any child support, so I've offered to pay for the treatment.

I had to put down an initial $200.00 for each cat and the balance is likely to run an additional $300.00 for each cat depending on how long they have to remain at the hospital.

Hartz Mountain has caused the serious illness of 2 innocent cats and possibly $1,000.00 in treatment fees.

Please don't make the same mistake my sister did -- don't trust your pets health to Hartz Mountain.
