    I did thanks. I am seriously hysterical right now from reading stories of what has happened to cats that someone used Hartz on. Now my mom and I are fighting too. I am having one of the worst nights of my life right now! I am terrified to loose my babies, and she doesn't seem to understand my panic. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    washing the area with dawn is the best way to remove all of the chemical. Dawn dissolves the oils better than soap. Call your vet int he morning and don't panic.
    Even though the potential problems are scary, they are still pretty rare considering how many animals it is used on. Call your vet and/or a pet poison control center (I think they all charge $$ to talk to you) and ask what symptoms to watch for.

    Thank you so much! I think i will. It probably would've happened already anyways. They are all well this morning. I still will call when they open to ask, but I feel much better seeing them running around like they usually do! Happy new years!

    Dawn dish soap works better for fleas on cats than anything else, and you don't have to worry about the fleas developing resistance to chemicals. But do give them a few baths to be sure you get them all off, including any hatching eggs.

    Thanks everybody! They're doing fine. It's been over 24 hours since we put it on them, and about 18 hours since we tried getting it off... I'm sure they will be fine, but we will never use Hartz again! That is super scary all the stories I've heard...
