Call center worker allegedly got 200-300 complaints daily on Hartz flea treatment killing pets

This is another highly disturbing story about killing cats and dogs. It is sad and morbidly fascinating that when you search Twitter for tweets on ‘killing cats’ these sorts of stories pop up. Often it is a crazy individual who takes pleasure in torturing and killing domestic cats allowed outdoors.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

In this instance if concerns a major pet product brand called Hartz. The video on Twitter can be seen by clicking the link on this page (below). It shows a man who has a TiKTok account who appears to be fighting Hartz and he does a ‘duet’ in TikTok language with another guy on TikTok who used to be a call center worker fielding complaints from Hartz customers.

The call center worker whose NDA has expired so he can talk alleges that he received 200-300 complaints from I presume cat and dog owners EVERY DAY about Hartz products killing pets. He does not mention Hartz by name. He refers to Hartz as a ‘brand’ but by implication it is Hartz because of the context in which he makes the allegation.

Thousands killed?

If what he says is true, it means that thousands of pets are being killed by Hartz flea and tick treatments MONTHLY. That assessment is made on the basis that he was the only call center worker dealing with Hartz complaints which is unlikely.

How do I know it is a flea/tick treatment?

He does not mention the product. So why have I referred to flea and tick treatments? It is because Google search results on this are in your face on the dangers of Hartz flea and tick treatments. And flea and tick treatments are practically the only over the counter product that can kill cats and dogs and they do often as they are very toxic.

There was a change.org website petition and there was a website dedicated to Hartz killing pets which no longer runs. Strange that, as the petition received a tiny 42 supporters! Did someone nobble it? Did Hartz put pressure on change.org to pull the petition? I don’t know.

This reflects what the guy in the video says about a conspiracy going on to squash dissenters and those who are disseminating information as I am here and now.

Big business hates people like me and this guy. For obvious reasons.

“When our precious kitty “Sparky” was 3 years old, we purchased Hartz Flea & Tick and applied it to the nape of her neck. Within a few minutes she began falling over, not able to stand. To this day, she still wobbles when she stands and walks.” – change.org website petition.

Previous page of 2015

In 2015 I wrote about Hartz flea treatment. I said this:

As I understand it, the problem insecticide used in the product is tetrachlovinphos (TCVP). Propoxur also appears to be dangerous. There have been attempts to get this insecticide banned in these products without success. There is a court case running through the US Court of Appeal to force the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take action.

You can read that page by clicking on this link.

My advice would be common sense advice: don’t go near this product. There are alternatives. And be aware that all flea treatments are potentially very dangerous. They can damage the cat’s nervous system.
