I am sorry to hear about Mani. How long ago was the flea product applied? Was it a spray?

I would bathe him, to remove as much of the Happy Jack as possible.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 6 months ago.

Happy Jack contains pyrethrins and permithrins, which can cause tremors or even seizures in cats. If the tremors are bad, there is a medication your veterinarian can give, called methocarbomol, that will help until the insecticide wears off.
