Living in an area that tends to have hot and dry summers, we usually have a pretty big problem with fleas and ticks during the summer months. The ticks alone are enough to drive a person insanely crazy, since they tend to come inside the house, riding the dogs like a cowboy on a horse, and dropping commando style wherever the dog happens to stop. Then, they stalk you until you least expect it, and then strike. Since ticks have a tendency to carry some pretty nasty diseases, this is a frightening thing. Fleas are likewise an issue, but seem to be even worse than the ticks. We decided to give the Hartz Ultraguard a try, since it was cheap when compared to other well known brands, and because it was readily available. Needless to say, we were quite disappointed.
Hartz Ultraguard Flea and Tick Drops for Dogs
Now, I don't happen to have a degree in chemistry, and don't know what strange combination of supposed toxins go into the Hartz Ultraguard flea and tick drops, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's like candy to the fleas. They seem to just eat it up happily. What they don't do, however, is die. At all. Don't waste your time or money with this.
