Re: Dangerous Flea Treatments and Shampoos/ Permethrin

"Sargents kills cats"

That was the first thing my Vet said when I told her I used Sargents Flea drops on the cat I took in one night (Fay).

At the time I thought Fay was a stray and she was being driven crazy by fleas, it turns out she has an alergy to their bites. I took her flea bitten self in on a Sunday night and felt so sorry for her biting and scratching that I went they carry, Sargents Flea and Tic for cats. At the time I didn't know any better but 2 hours later I could tell it was hurting her.

When I told my Vet about her reaction she said "Sargents kills cats" and "Can you believe they sell that".

Hartz makes Sargents. After that I even found news videos about it.

I've never seen it in Petsmart.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

This video is graphic but necessary. All of the animal abusers employees of Hartz, Sergeant's and any other company marketing and distributing this POISON, take notice. You are helping the abuse of innocent animals.

How can anyone work for these companies and sleep at night daring to say they care for animals

Re: Dangerous Flea Treatments and Shampoos/ Permethrin

Here's the television news story I just spent the afternoon looking for. The product I used on Fay is the one in the newscasters left hand.

I do not like the companies that would do this.

My Vet sold me Fleabusters.

It's for your house, NOT to be applied to your cat.

I hope I'm not violating a rule showing it.

The reviews are all good. As long as people read the instructions, I think that's an informative post.

As you said, "Not for applying to your pet! Use it for your house. " Expensive, but probably well worth it, if you have an infestation.

Re: Dangerous Flea Treatments and Shampoos/ Permethrin

I buy flea treatment in bulk for dogs from australia, and split up the dosages (frontline plus). It is much cheaper. I make sure the two active ingredients are the same, in fact the drug designated for cats is a little stronger.

Re: Dangerous Flea Treatments and Shampoos/ Permethrin

Hi there, you guys, quick question:

i know i may be being over zealous with the health of my (not really "mine") cats health but i love her and i just don't want to put her in harms way.
Anyways, like 3 days ago, Friday night, my family treated themselves for scabies (a bloody nightmare, i'll tell you), 5% permethrin cream, all over (not fun!). The 3 of us did it before bed and washed it off early Saturday morning and all is well, still itching but never mind.
Right, to cut a long story short, a cat that used to live next door and visit me all the time (ALL the time), has arrived on my window ledge (i think she has walked like 2 miles!?), i'm so glad to see her, it is too late to call her owners right now, but is it ok to let her in to sleep in my bed? I hear that permethrin cream is pretty toxic, will there be traces all over the place like on carpets (i had to put it on my bare feet a walked around all night) and other stuff? I have heard that its safe when its dry, it has been 2 days but i dunno... shed some light on the subject, can you?

P.s i hope this is the right place to post this if its not i apologise.

Thanks,

Robbie.

I would guess there wouldn't be a problem after two days. Of course, I'm not a vet.
