But Hartz Flea and Tick Spray for cats also come with some downsides. Some of the negative feedback from users include excessive salivation after application, vomiting, agitation, and reactions such as seizures in extreme cases. Some owners have had more success using over-the-counter products that contain less dangerous chemicals than what is inside this Hartz product.
Another downside is that with all of the bad reviews about Hartz products in general, many people find it hard to trust any of their products with their pet’s health. And most often these experiences will be enough to keep many people from using anything made by Hartz again. So if you do decide to use Hartz Flea and Tick Spray for Cats, keep in mind that there may be a chance of adverse side effects.
Also, if you have an indoor cat or if your cat is strictly kept indoors, this product will not provide the kind of protection they need against fleas and ticks. While this might seem obvious to most pet owners who understand how these outdoor pests can affect their pets, some people still feel that it is okay to give such products as Hartz Flea and Tick Spray for Cats to an indoor cat because they live inside.
That’s simply not true; even cats that live indoors are susceptible to these pests and could get them from other outside cats that come into contact with your home before you notice them on your pet. Cats that stay outside and come inside for food or bedtime should be treated with a product designed for indoor cats such as Advantage II, Frontline Plus, or Revolution.
