Using dog products such as flea or tick treatment on cats
Never use dog products on cats
The Pyrethrin in dog powder can be highly toxic and potentially fatal for cats. Poisoning can arise when cats are accidentally treated with dog flea products or if they groom themselves or other animals treated with the product.
Always read treatment labels carefully, as those that contain Pyrethrins or Pyrethroids should be avoided at all costs.
Cats may salivate a great deal, be thirsty and have a high temperature and tremors or convulsions – urgent veterinary advice is essential.
