A viewer linked us to this truly upsetting video of a cat suffering the symptoms of Sergeant's Bansect poisoning. It's genuinely horrible to watch, and apparently it's not an uncommon problem.

There's an issue with the active ingredients, propuxor and tetrachlorvinphos, which are both known neurotoxins for mammals. If your bathing routine involves licking your entire body obscenely, and you're coated in this crap, it's pretty easy to ingest enough to cause serious harm.

How horrifying... I do not EVER want to see any other animals suffering because of it. D:

In fact, I'm going to ensure that everyone I know does not ever use Sergeant Bansect.

This crap shouldn't even exist. Leave it to the good ol' USA to let such horrible things get to market. >:/

Oh, no.. One of my cats had kittens last year and once they were old enough I treated the whole litter with this.. one of them (the only female in the litter) ended up getting very frequent seizures and we could never figure out why it so suddenly set on..
We ended up having to have her put down. ;(

RIP Marie

Doing what I can to help I just shared this comic, a link to the site, and a link to the video on tumblr, so hopefully the word will get out and that awful product will be taken off the market. I just wish more people followed me so it could get out faster ;-; this is really serious, and I don't want that product out there anymore.

I love Keno's closing line! "Consult a vet, or at least the 'net" Brilliant. I am sharing this on Facebook to raise awareness

@VictorB: Ditto. I'm truly surprised we're allowing this to hit our shelves... </murrican> (Also, Keno's a poet and probably doesn't know it!)

NO WAY! neko has updated within a day! this is really WOAAAAAAAAAH!

I'm not trying to appear insensitive here, and I know this is up within a day only because it's so important.

WTAF? r u for real? did the person that decided to sell such a product do so before or after they consumed a bottle of it themselves?
