Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi there, I am Dr. Kane, and I will do my best to assist you today. Pet Action Plus contains the active ingredient fipronil, and it is usually in an alcohol base. Being a veterinarian, I am exposed to fipronil on a very regular basis, and have even accidentally gotten it on my lips and mouth like you- and it tastes horrible! Luckily the product is very safe. The exception to that is that some individuals (animals and people) may be over sensitive, or even allergic to it. Rinsing your mouth out and lips off with water should limit exposure. However, if you experience any swelling, redness, breathing difficulties, or any other abnormalities, you will need to see a doctor. To be on the safe side, I would give your doctor a call to make sure there aren't any other precautions you should be taking. I hope this has helped. Do you have any other questions for me now?
Are you all set for now?
