All The Sweet Puppies Need Our Help!!!!!

My very dear friend and fellow artist, Linda White, known by most as Paint_Misbehavin, has a very sick pup on her hands. Why? Because she trusted a reputable seller of pet products, Sergeants. Please read what is happening to her sweet Sophie, pictured:
2 days ago our little dog, Sophie got fleas. As you know we are on a fixed income and I just could not afford to buy Frontline. I went to Petco and bought Sentrypro xfc. IT IS POISON!
Within 18 hours, my precious little dog was trembling,listless,limping on both hind legs and generally tormented. Scratching endlessly, chewing at her feet. And still had fleas besides.
I called the 800 # on the box. They were not very helpful, claimed not to know a thing about any adverse reactions and in fact insinuated that I must have applied it wrong.
Online I found some things other pet owners did, I washed her twice with Dawn to try to get it off, gave her benedryl and even feed her a can of tuna, now what the hell that does don't ask me, but several people mentioned it. Pete and I have been up all night, trying to comfort her, it is 6 am now and as soon as the vets opens we will be there!
I know we all love our pets here so please, I beg you, pass the word around about this to anyone who ever loved a dog. Circulate emails etc.
While you are at it, you might want to say a little prayer for my Sophie.
I will update you later when I know more.

Please sign the petition below to have this product removed and stop all the needless deaths and suffering! Also please say a prayer for Sophie and spread the word on your blogs.
I will keep up dates on how Sophie is doing!

poor baby...we are going through the same thing with our toy chihuahua...we have tried alot of the flea stuff out there and alot of it makes him sick. I think even though these products say they are for tiny dogs, they are not. I hope sophie gets better. she's a cutie

I heard about this on the news. I am so sorry it has happened to your little Sophie. I'll keep her in my prayers!!
I have 3 furry children so I know you must be worried sick.

Our vet told us last year to use Frontline on our Maine Coon Cat...Poor Bitzy had never had fleas before and the new apartment we moved into had them..They were driving her crazy, she was bleeding and trying to out run them...Well we used the Frontline Plus like the Vet said and my poor beautiful cat lost all her fur, had to go on antibiotics, drop so much weight...After doing some research I found out that stuff is highly toxic and has killed many cats..She is finally much better and all her gorgous long fur is back she is now back to her nice robust weight of 14 lbs...How can a Vet be unaware of the side effects this crap has on animal...I do hope her little puppy will be okay...
