This is my story. A while back my mom and I went to L & M Pets in Hudson New York looking for medicine to put on my ferrets because we saw fleas on them after we went to TN. We had brought them with us. They then recommended Bio Spot to us saying that it was a good product and it works on Ferrets also. We looked around but the only thing that was there for ferrets was the Bio Spot. And it was for Cats and Ferrets. So to us that was great because we definitely weren't thinking that it would cause anything bad to occur. We then used it on our ferrets and a couple days later we noticed that our ferrets lost so much weight, wouldn't eat, and were just pretty much dieing. We didn't think anything of the Bio Spot. But we didn't know how they got sick. We brought them straight to the Copake Vet once we noticed. He couldn't figure out what had caused it. He gave us some medicine hoping that it would help save our ferrets. And it did.

About a week ago the dogs were let loose by someone from our backyard and once we found them they were covered in fleas. They gave it to the rest of the animals in the house. I kept forgetting to ask my boss at the Humane Society for medicine to fix the flea problem. Now on Monday September 25th 2006 we noticed that we had another package of that Bio Spot left from before. And we looked to see if there was an expiration date on it and there wasn't. So we thought well to help the cats out and now make them suffer anymore we could use it on them to get rid of there fleas. We had 3 cats. Jasmine, a little kitten that I had recently got, wasnt even a year old. Esmerelda, which is about 2 or 3 years old. And Bagheera, a cat of 13 years. I put the Bio Spot on all 3 for them around 4 in the afternoon. In the order of, I put the medicine on Jasmine, Esmerelda, and then Bagheera last.

Around 11:30pm, my dad yelled up to me to come down stairs. And Jasmine was going crazy. She was shaking, could barely walk, drooling all over, and was burning up. She could hardly keep her eyes open. She was blinking very rapidly. So I grabbed her and brought her upstairs to go show my mom but before I got all the way upstairs my dad called me down again. This time he said Esmerelda is trying to jump up on the radiator and she keeps falling. So I ran back downstairs. She was on the floor shaking and blinking really fast. She also felt a little warm but not as bad. So I was sitting down with both of them and my dad went to go wake my mom. When he did that she came downstairs and sat with the cats with me. Then not even 5 minutes later my dad yells again. I ran up the stairs and likely to find Bagheera was going crazy as well. She was shaking, drooling, and again was blinking so fast. We brought them all downstairs with us. Right then we knew it was the Bio Spot cause there was no way it could be anything else. We called the number on the box to see what we should do and they wouldn't do anything for us. So I called my vet at Mountain View. And since by then it was almost a quarter till midnight we got the answering machine that told us to call the emergency vet in Kingston. So we did and as soon as I told them that we used Bio Spot, they said you have to bring them in right away. So we put all the cats in laundry baskets because we didn't have carriers at the time. We stopped at my job and grabbed 3 to use. Then made our way to Kingston. The whole time Bagheera was having seizers and drooling. Once we got to the vet we saw the cats in the light. Bagheera looked dead. She was laying there with her mouth wide open, white foam all around her mouth, with her eyes barely open, and completely stiff. The doctor didn't even say anything and came out and grabbed her hooking her up to IVs and everything else. Then came back to get the other two. They all got baths there. Then were treated. With valiums and other muscle relaxers. Bagheera and Jasmine were put on IVs. They had to stay overnight but Esmerelda was able to come home. And did shake all night. But the next day we went to pick up Jasmine and Bagheera to bring them to Mountain View. Jasmine ended up being fine just drowsy and couldn't walk so we brought her home. But Bagheera still shaking and having violent seizers all the time had to stay there. All day we called and called to see how she was doing. But there was no change. Every time they took her off the IV to see if she was getting any better she would have another seizer. The next morning on Wednesday September 27th my mom got a call from our vet saying that she passed away.

Now this was all over flea medicine by Bio Spot! We were trying to help our cats and look what it did. There is no reason for that its just plain unfair!

I went on the internet looking for information about others that have used Bio Spot. Here is one website. http://www.elversonpuzzle.com/biospot.html. If you click on the likes that say volumes and have a date next to them it tells other stories bout people that have used Bio Spot on dogs and cats. These stories are the same as mine. MANY people have lost there pets to something that should only be out to help animals. But haven't done anything about it because they don't know what there is to do. My family and I want them out of business. And so does all the vets I know. Our vet said he has seen this happen before and heard about it many times. It should never be out to sell. Oh and get this. The Emergency vet looked on the internet the day that she had the cats and found on vet websites that Bio Spot has a packaging error and when packaging the cat and ferret flea medicine they put in large dog 33+ pound flea medicines. AND NEVER RECALLED THE PROUDUCT! They shouldn't be able to sell such a product. Please help us and sign this petition. It won't help us get our cat back but we are fighting for her and all the other animals out there that suffered from Bio Spot! Help us get them out of business. Thank you!
