Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about Wiggles. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
I am also sorry you did not get help before now from an expert. I just came online and saw your question. How is he doing today? Do you still need help with him?
This product is mostly peppermint and clove oil, so he must be sensitive to one of those. You need to break down oil with detergent or soap, not just water. Bathing him in Dawn dish detergent, and then rinsing off the soap really well should removing whatever is irritating him, and will also help kill fleas.
I hope he is better today. Let me know if I can answer anything else. Rebecca
