Flea Products and Cats

Cats are very easily poisoned by the misapplication of flea products.  They are much more sensitive to these products as they do not have the liver enzymes to break them down that dogs do.    And kittens are even more delicate.  Therefore always be sure the label says the product is for cats and not just dogs, and that it is for your pet’s age.

The size of the dosage related to weight can also cause problems.  Trying to save money by using one applicator meant for a bigger animal on several small cats can result in a very expensive trip to the vet.

If you do discover you made a mistake shampoo the pet with Dawn dish washing detergent.  And call your vet!!!
