This is a cat that has been treated with over the counter flea meds such as Hartz or sargeant’s or zodiac spot on that contain permethrin and are designed for dogs. They should NOT be used on cats. Every year, many cats are poisoned because they are treated directly OR come in contact with a dog that’s treated or the dog’s bedding after the dog has slept in in after treatment. Would NOT have this in my house for ANY pets. Problem is , Pet store staff and general store (walmart/ canadian tire/ grocery/ hardware store) will sell these and not be trained to ask you if you have a cat OR even be aware they will kill your cat, or harm your dog sometimes — at Highbury North Pet Hospital.
