My lovely little cat was not impressed with me putting flea spot on on the back of her neck and moved so I think quite a bit of it may have ended up in a place she can groom as she now has a horrible wet patch and is deeply unimpressed with me.
I am obviously worried I have poisoned her or will cause her some sort of damage - she licked it when I saw her and gagged! What can I do? The instructions say symptomatic treatment by the vet in case of oral uptake - but hopefully most of it went in the right place... It is, of course, stupidly late and I have two, small DC so can't leave the house
Have put a few treats down and she was on them like a devil - super quick! But she's avoiding her usual spot on the bed where she tends to cuddle up to me - is she just giving me the silent treatment rather than anything more worrying?
Is the wet patch definitely saliva? Our cat always ends up with a wet patch where the spot on goes. What are the symptoms you should look for? Oh and the bed thing? I bet it's sulking/making you suffer!!
it is definitely grooming as the hair is sort of parted and she properly gagged... but the leaflet implies there might be some transient symptoms but I don't know as she is hiding from me (unless I whip out the treats!)
Thank you and yes, have always used it but she just wriggled forward so it dripped backwards It is Advocate and I think/hope most of it was out of reach but she can clearly get to one patch and was going for it!
The injections ( Program) don't kill live fleas it only prevent fleas from breeding. The best way to get spot on is to get on your knees clamp cat between knees and then put spot on to stop wriggling. Alternatively switch to the new product Broadline that enables you to stop and start giving the product as cat wriggles away.
Thank you all - she is her usual self today so obviously didn't ingest too much but will take a lot more care in future. she is a bit of a wild one - the only time she's scratched me was when I tried to hold her down for worming... she is very proud of her independence!
Sorry to redirect!, but my cat has just done the exact same, lunges as I was dropping and it ended up just below her skull- and with a big Stretch round it looks like she can reach it with her grooming.
Should I be worried? It was Bravecto, not advocate
