About Sergeant’s Pet Care Products:
The BBB has received 20 complaints since June 2008 alleging that pets experience serious health complications when Sergeant's Gold Flea and Tick Squeeze are applied. Sergeant's Pet Care Products, Inc. has responded to each complaint presented by the BBB by stating that the manufacturing and use of their products are approved and closely regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As warned on all Sergeants' Flea and Tick product labels, sensitivities may occur after using any pesticide product for pets. However, the number of animals that may experience sensitivity to these products is statistically very low. Sergeant's Pet Care Products, Inc. states that they stand behind their products and offer to compensate customer for charges incurred on a case by case basis if the company determines that a pet has exhibited sensitivity to their product. Sergeant's Pet Care Products, Inc. also encourages consumers to read the entire label and label instructions prior to the application of all flea and tick products.
