this kills dogs!!!!

By 

from USA

Comments about Sergeant's Flea & Tick Drops:

We tried frontline, but apparently the fleas where I am are resistant to fipronil, so I bought this at Walmart. First three treatments (two dogs) seemed ok, and we got the fleas under control. Third month (and I was even late on this, more like almost 6 weeks), one of my dogs reacted with severe salivating, tremors, and anxiety. I put her in the tub immediately, called my vet, fed her cooked rice, and stayed up with her all night with the plan o an emergency vet visit. The vet said this could have been fatal if we hadn't caught the reaction immediately. I never put this stuff at the base of the tail, since I know she will lick it off. Won't risk this again!!! I will be switching to Program or something similar.

Side Effects
see comments. Dog reacted very badly.

Wouldn't kill a flea if you dropped it in it

By 

from Northport, AL

Comments about Sergeant's Flea & Tick Drops:

I don't know what possessed  me to buy this, maybe the fact that we had at that time 6 rescues in addition to our own many pets. I should have known better, because my (vast) experience with flea and tick remedies has been you get what you pay for.

  Well, I am now convinced that If I squirted this worthless crap directly on a flea, it would have no effect whatsoever on it. We applied it to  a 4 pound Chihuahua with hardly any hair, who had very few fleas, and never saw any difference, EXCEPT she started drooling and slobbering and staggering. After a call to the vet, we bathed her . 

 My sister in law lost her cat after using this on it. Apparently the company has it all backwards, and thinks we want to kill the pets instead of the pests? How have they not been sued? How is this hot mess still on the market:?

 Sargeant has become one of the most untrusted names in pet products in the last 3 years, I hav no idea how they stay in business.

Not Only Kills Fleas But Your Pet Too

By 

from Canton, IL

Comments about Sergeant's Flea & Tick Drops:

I have two dogs, both which are primarily indoor pets.  I, typically, just use flea drops that I just purchase at a mass merchandiser rather from a vet because the are less inexpensive and my dogs aren't really outside so much that they require a "heavy duty" flea and tick treatment.  I purchased Sergeants Flea & Tick drops because the store was out of the brand I typically use.  I applied it to both my dogs.  Within an hour my smaller dog (a puggle) became very agitated and it was obvious that he was itching terribly all over his body.  He seemed to be in pain.  i immediately bathed him with a mild dog shampoo because I was sure it was the flea drops.  My other dog (a beagle mix) also seemed uncomfortable so I bathed her as well.  She seemed to fare much better than my poor little puggle.  Within hours he was miserable, he was wheezing, he seemed to be itchy because he kept trying to rub on walls but he also seemed to be in pain when you touched him.  I rinsed him two more times during the night but it wasn't helpful.  I gave him benadryl, but it didn't really help.  He had a look of desperation in his eyes.  i felt so sorry for him.  I stayed up with him all night.  I was at the vet's office when they opened at 8 a.m.  He had to get a shot of benadryl/corticosteroids and then had to take benadryl and aspirin for about a week.  I was also told by the vet assistant that there had been a number of cats brought in "nearly dead" after their owners had used Sergeants Flea Drops (for cats) on them.
