I lost my dog Sept 1st. This is the first time I saw this article about Hartz UltraGuard. I’ve used it monthly every summer season. When I woke that morning I went to check on Shadow, and she had passed in her sleep. I’ve also used it on our four cats for ages, but will never use it again. I have no way to find out if it was from the Hartz. I had her cremated, because I’m AOD from army 1966. All my pets from the past 40 years will be mixed with my ashes when I go. I only wish I had seen this earlier, if it is the cause. She never had a skin reaction but I don’t know what it might have done to her internally. I hope someone starts a class action suit against Hartz. If I could still walk, I’d go to the company to find out just what’s what with them and demand some answers.

-Pastor Marc

Readers, please honor Shadow by spreading the word — far and wide — about how dangerous these cheap flea and tick products are. Every box of Hartz (and other toxic brands) is a tragedy waiting to happen. Your voice makes the difference in this fight.

    I used Hertz Ultra Guard Flea and Tick Shampoo on my Cocker and within 24 to 36 hrs. he could not see. This is very upsetting for our family. His brother has no problem and I contacted the breeder and she feels it was the Hertz product. Has anyone else had a problem with their pets vision?

  • Hartz Flea Spray almost killed my cat!
    I learned about Hartz years ago. Rusty was about 4 when I used Hartz flea spray on him. By morning, he was vomiting and shaking.
