Pros:You can watch fleas die before your eyes. Good for animal's coat.
Cons:Doesn't kill fleas as long as claimed, potential for chemical poisoning
We received this product as part of a "kit" when we got our cocker spaniel a few years ago. Our spaniel, really attracted lots of fleas! Hartz 2 and 1 was a good general shampoo. It killed fleas and removed dirt from fur right before your very eyes. I was impressed. I was also impressed by the warnings on the label against touching human skin. I'd wear latex gloves while bathing my dog and often change clothes and bathe myself after giving my dog a bath. I wouldn't let my young daughter get near the shampoo (or many other harsh products.) In areas of our yard where we did the dog baths, the grass died. It is now about three years later and I can still tell where the dog bath area was. Our local pet store owners recommended that we discontinue use of this product and some other flea products because the chemicals will build up in your pets body causing disease and even death. They recommended Lemon Joy Dishwashing detergent. It worked and gave us the same few days protection against fleas. The Lemon Joy required a few minutes more to kill the fleas, but I didn't bother with the gloves and would let my child near the dog bathing antics.Hartz does make your dog look good and helps remove any unpleasant odors. I recommend using it every now and then, in case of more "challenging" dirt or flea problems.
