    Hartz All Natural Pig Strips killed my 9 lb, 2 year old female yorkshire terrior. My dog became ill shortly after giving her a treat made by Hartz. She began vomiting and had diarrhea over the next couple of days. I woke up on Sunday morning and she was bleeding from her rectum. I immediately took her to the vet and she died on the table. I have a four month puppy who has started throwing up today. I am taking him to the vet this afternoon. I will have tests run and let you know more. I contacted Hartz and all they did was say I’m sorry and gave me a case number. Something has to be done so that others do not lose their family pets like I did. They are selling poison and don’t even care.

      Absolutely horrendous — I am so sorry. Please let us know how the puppy is doing. I hope you will consider posting your story on HartzVictims.org as well.

    I have an 8 month old mini schnauzer I gave him a Hartz Pig strip 2 nights ago and around 40 mins later he got up and acted like something was hurting him in his hind end and began going around in circles and began to run around the room and started shaking terrible and keep looking around the room almost as if he was seeing something but nothing was there it lasted about 20 mins and after that he acted as if he was exhausted and nervous. The next night I gave him another one to see if perhaps it might be the pig strips or if it was just a freak happening but the same thing happened. The strip was the only thing different we gave him as a treat. I will not give him to them anymore and I am going to contact Hartz and let my vet know. Please let me know if your dog had any of these signs after giving him a Hartz pig strip. Thank you

    just took my dog to the vet today…poison of pesticides…from hartz
    he will be ok but i put the flea and tick drops on his back last wed and he slowly went downhill…
    first he was lathargic and “high”for 2 days…drymouth too…
    then his legs started moving uncontrollably and he had trouble walking
    i didnt know(and how could i) that this product is not medicine..in fact its pure pesticide(says my vet).NEVER AGAIN WILL I PURCHASE ANY PRODUCT FROM HARTZ.
    WE NO LONGER PUT PESTICIDES ON OUR LAWNS…WHY WOULD A COMPANY SELL IT TO POUR ON OUR PETS..OUTRAGEOUS

    I put the flea and tick medicine on my 12 pound orange tabby, and within 30 minutes he came tearing down the stairs panting and meowing. He was rubbing at where I applied the medicine. I tried to wipe it off and he just kept getting worse. My heart was in my throat and I … Continue reading Almost killed
