We bought this product after finding a flea on our female boxer. We gave the treatment to two of our three boxers and they became sick and threw up during the night. When we got up the next morning, the female was still sick to her stomache, and our two year old male was so sick that he could hardly walk. It seemed like he was having trouble with his balence. We called our vet and she recommended that we call Sergeants and tell them the situation so we did. This was the biggest waste of time that I have ever seen! They acted like we didn't know what we were talking about, wouldn't tell us much and insisted that our vet call them. I called my vet again and she told us to take Dawn dish soap and wash both dogs two times each. the only thing she could do is give a i.v. if he dehydrates. (Thank god we were able to get him to drink some water all day. After his second bath he started to act like himself again. THEY NEED TO PUT ANY AND ALL SIDE EFFECTS ON THE BOX !! THEN THE CONSUMER CAN MAKE A INFORMED DECISION ON USING IT OR NOT. as for me I will Never use any other products by Sergeants again. they don't understand it's not just a dog, it's a member of the family, like ones own child.

We have a 1 year old chihuahua and 30 minutes after taking sergeants flea control she started vomiting, and pacing, and acting like shes never acted before .. she vomited once and also foams at the mouth, what can we do, right now the vet is closed, thank you
I used Sergeant's Flea and Tick Carpet powder. Sprinkled, broomed, then vacuumed per instructions. Actually, instructions say for best results leave on carpet for 24 hours. Wait til dust settles after brooming before allowing pets into room. But we vacuumed right away. 4 hours later my daughter and 4 month old collie/lab mix came over for 4 hour visit. After getting home the puppy had a "seizure". I'm not a vet but she was shaking uncontrollably, disorientated, foaming at the mouth, etc. I believe it was a seizure. Called 800 number for Sergeant's, they said take to vet but that it wasn't caused by their product. Vet said $800 to $1200. She is on unemployment and I am unemployed. We can barely pay our bills. At 2am she had another "seizure". Called poison control and found out that the active ingredient causes seizures in rabbits. This is a small 15-20 pound puppy. Sergeant's lied to me. Praying for a miracle now.
In early April of 2009, I applied Sergeants Flea & Tick Powder to my 5 year old Tabby, Oliver. A couple days following, I noticed that he was having muscle spams. When I took him to the vet, I was asked if I had applied any topical powder to him and was then told that Permethrin-- one of the active ingredients in Sergeant Flea and Tick Powder for Cats—is harmful to animals and was causing the “tremors.” Oliver was diagnosed with Permethrin poisoning.
At the end of May, I took Oliver in to discuss treatment as the tremors have not ceased. My vet suggested that we may be looking at extensive neurological damage, and that he needs to stay on meds. Since he had been taking Diazepam (Valium®) for more than a month, a full blood work up on him was necessary to be sure the drugs weren’t harming his liver. As I waited for the results, I watched my once energetic, playful kitty tremor away feeling completely helpless and saddened that he may never be the same. All I want is for him to be well—and wished I could get back the day I dusted him with that poison. 15 minutes passed and my vet entered the room with a somber look on her face. Olivers blood work showed he was in the advanced stages of Kidney Failure (CRF)
We aggressively treated Oliver at the animal hospital and at home. He was fed and watered via syringe. He required a saline drip twice a day. He was "pilled" four times day. My kitty who once ran to the door to greet me every day-- ran FROM me as he knew what seeing me meant. I was the one closest to Oliver, so Im the one that did his treatments. One Saturday afternoon, while sitting with him in our backyard comforting him after a "pilling" session, the thing I knew was coming, yet dreaded, happened. Oliver looked at me and let me know that he was tired. He needed me to let him go. On August 10, 2009 we gave Oliver his wings. We were with him until he closed his eyes for the last time. Although it is difficult, we know he is at peace. Now he's our Angel.
Jeff Balion, a FOX9 investigative reporter, followed Olivers story. The FOX9 cameras were with him the remaining few hours of his life recording him doing what he loved-- walking around the yard and watching the birds and butterflies. As of right now, it will air September 23 on the 9pm newscast.
In doing research about Permethrin Poisoning/Toxicity, I have come across hundreds of horrible, heartbreaking stories not only about the Sergeants product I used on my cat, but other Hartz Mountain products that have caused skin burns, skin irritations, neurological problems, seizures, kidney problems & even death in cats AND dogs. Why Hartz Mountain has products on the shelves that are harmful to the animals they are supposed to protect is beyond my scope of understanding, but I do know this: They need to be held accountable.
I have started a Facebook page in his name to serve as a petition. Adding Oliver as your friend (facebook.com/oliver.d.cat) means that you agree that the sale of over the counter products that hurt, permanently damage and kill our pets needs to be stopped. Please, join the PROTECT OUR PETS cause on that page. You will not receive any emails from me other than to remind you of the broadcast.

Two cats' reaction to Hartz Flea & Tick Drops (VERY DISTURBING):
All 3 of my dogs have had reactions to this product, i.e., skin burning and infection on site of application...
I've used the Sergeant's and Hartz products on my pets for years. I never thought to question their...
LISTEN. DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT BUY THIS FOR YOUR DOG!!! DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT!!! This stuff is soooo bad even...
I gave my dog Princess, (a 9-month old 5-pound female Maltese) a bath and noticed she had a few fleas. I picked off the few I found on her and decided before it got bad to buy this flea medication. I went to the store and bought this medication thinking it would be ok for her...boy, was I wrong. My husband helped me apply the medication to her back as directed from the shoulder blades to the base of her tail and within 30 minutes she started running around like her back was on fire. Then came the trouble breathing and the weezing. Her personality completely changed and I could just tell she was in pain. Then my husband and I noticed the color of her tounge turned from a deep pink color to a very pail almost white color. This when we really discovered that she was not getting enough oxygen and having a bad reaction to the medication. We immediately took her to the Vet Emergency room and the Doctor notified us that just e few days prior to us bringing our Maltese in, that someone else had brought in a small Yorkie that had been given the same exact medication with the same symptoms. Our little Princess had to stay in the hospital overnight and was given an IV to help her. They also had to shave the hair on her back to make sure all the medication was removed and gave her another bath. The docotr said that if we wouldn't have brought her in when we did that she would have started getting ceisures that can be fatal. Please, be advised NOT TO USE THIS MEDICATION FOR YOUR DOG>>>>IT WILL MAKE YOUR PET SICK!!!
We applied this product to our dog as directed. After 20 minutes, our dog acted crazy. She was in severe pain all night. She ran a fever. We washed off the product immediately but that did not help. She did not get any sleep, nor did we - she kept crying all night. This product should not be used by anyone. We took her to the vet the next day and she got a shot and was given valium. This product should be taken off the shelves!!!
had to take my dog Linden to the emergency vet on Saturday night – then to another vet (The Marina Animal Clinic) on Sunday. I put some sergeants GOLD flea and tick on him Saturday morning (I bought at Wal-mart) and apparently vets and consumers are trying to get it off the shelf. I didn’t know anything was wrong with him until about 8 hours after I applied it – had I paid attention I’d have noticed immediately that he was not well – it is like he couldn’t sit still and he kept barking and doing this low under the radar type of whine. I spent the entire day on my front porch and only took him out side for a walk once – where he kept eating grass (which I’ve never seen him do) – apparently animals do this sometimes when they are sick. Once I sat down with him – he kept laying his head on me and crying and then he would lay in his bed for 60 seconds – then get up and lay on me – then get up and lay on the floor. I immediately got online to see about the Sergeants and immediately came across hundreds of horror stories – some going on in real time – where animals were sick from this stuff. I quickly bathed him – used joy (dawn is recommended) - and he really started crying - the skin on his back was pink and somewhat burned – HE NEVER ONCE TRIED TO GET OUT of the bathtub if that tells you anything. I took him to the emergency vet – and they thought I had gotten most of it off and he would be okay – he wasn’t ticking or anything with him because he was scared and shivering from the bath. I took him home and the symptoms seem to get worse – I called the emergency vet again and they told me to get him benadryl – to help with symptoms and allow him to sleep. They said the usual dosage is 1 mg per pound – but to give him a double dose – he is 12 pounds – so he basically took one 24 mg tablet. The emergency Vet said to take him to the vet the next day. The benadryl made him sleepy – but he still couldn’t sleep - he kept twitching or ticking like something was wrong with his nerves. I was up the entire night on Saturday into Sunday morning with him b/c he couldn’t sleep – and would only lay still if I rubbed his neck or petted him. I gave him another bath at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning and then took him to the Marina Animal Clinic as soon as they opened. They usually hook them up to IV fluids – to flush out what is in their system – but that usually requires overnight stay and the alternative was a very strong muscle relaxer to get him to stop ticking and encourage him with liquids – children’s pedialite, chicken broth -we took the shot because I didn’t want to leave him and the vet said he would probably be okay. Linden finally fell asleep around 4 pm. Sunday and he slept until this morning.
The vet gave me a FORM FDA 1932a – it is a form that you can fill out for an adverse drug reaction involving an animal. The Marina told me that they see at least one animal a day as a result of Sergeants, Hartz and Bio-spot. Many of the cats and dogs don’t survive – there are more reactions for cats than dogs. I think the only reason Linden didn’t have as severe of a reaction is because I didn’t get the entire tube on him as I spilled out some of it when I cut the tube open. The vet said they have seen entire families – like with three dogs – where they all the dogs got sick from it. I didn’t apply it wrong or give him the wrong dose either. I usually use frontline but was trying to save a buck – big mistake. Most animals start foaming at the mouth, can’t walk and many end up dying. The vet said the smartest thing I did was the baths and he asked that I let everyone I know – with or without pets of what is going on as they are working on getting it off the shelf. Some local vets have even contacted wal-mart in an effort to get it off the shelf. If you know someone with or without an animal – please let them know what is going on
If you get online and type in Sergeants Flea and Tick Poison or Hartz Flea and Tick reaction – you will come across dozens of websites and blogs that documents daily the horrible reaction dogs and cats have to this every day.
