SENTRY PRO XFC / Severe Allergic Reaction

1 Peckville, PA, United States Review updated:

I recently went to PetSmart and needed a flea and tick medication for my puggle because now that the weather is getting nicer, I needed to protect her. I usually use Frontline, but was told by a PetSmart rep. that this product is just as good. Was I in for a surprise. My poor dog started rubbing her back, crying, breathing heavy, drooling, and foaming from the mouth within 20 mins of application. I called the 800 number and they said that there is an ingredient which is unknown that makes the dogs feel like they have pins and needled and it really stresses them out. I almost went through the phone. Obviousbly this is a common complaint. We washed her with dish detergent, but she was really bad all night and didn't sleep a wink. I took her to the vet first thing in the morning and they had to put her on an anthahistamine and predisonel. She is extrenely lethargic, sleeps all day and is up all night. I called PetSmart and voice my stong opinion regarding this. When I finall researched this product online to my surprise there are millions of poor dogs that have to suffer for no reason. I am sick over this. These people should be condemned~

    Our pug and [censored]zu got really sick after I used the Sentry Pro flea and tick control this past Wednesday. Both started to itch terribly, they were had a difficult time walking. our pug had messed in our home for a couple of days. She really couldn't help it. They were in agony and cried. This is terrible stuff. I will never use this brand again. We went to the vet a couple of times after the symptoms did not go away - severe itching, difficulty standing up, being in pain. Our [censored]zu cried and I knew he was not feeling well. Never again. Saving a few bucks wasn't worth it. Its a week later and the pups are still not 100% better. What a terrible experience for our pups.

    I just recently purchased Sentryn flea and tic medicine -- my japanes chin and my [censored]zu have been very sick. They are scratching, licking, crying and acting like they still had fleas. I finally gave them some anahistamine and I am keeping a close eye on them. I am so angry that I purchased this product to simply help my animals and I have only hurt them. I can't believe all the bad reviews I have read about this product -- GO TO HELL SENTRY! I'm in on a class action lawsuit!
