Flea shampoos, collars and drops are causing tens of thousands of animals to have reactions such as: burned skin, seizures, vomiting and all the side effects of being poisoned. Thousands of animals have died.
The shampoos, collars and drops are manufactured by Sergeants, Bio Spot and Hartz. The ingredients that are poisoning these pets are Pyrethrins and Pyrethroids.
Thousands of complaints still have not resulted in these products being pulled from the shelves. The poisoning of innocent pets continues. There were 36,472 reported incidents in 2009 and 27, 216 reported in 2010. Statistics show that only 1-10% of side effects are reported. That means the numbers killed or injured by these products is staggering.
