Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help.
You must use a dish soap, such as Dawn or similar, to lather up her fur well, to remove as much residue as possible.
Ideally, Wildman should be seen by an emergency veterinarian, to receive Methocarbamol, which is a drug that can reverse the effects of the flea product toxicity.
Aside from the dish soap bath, to remove the residual product, there is not any at home treatment, other than keeping Wildman in a dark, quiet, warm place, to reduce unnecessary stimulation.
I am not sure where you read that, but it needs to happen.
The poison is absorbed through the skin, and the longer it is on the skin and fur, the worse the condition will become.
It is true that cats hate baths, but I don't see any other choice for you, if you are unable to obtain veterinary care right now
That's all you can do at home, like I mentioned earlier. Intravenous Medication is the ideal treatment but that's not available for home use.
yes, eating is fine, no reason to withhold food at this time.
