What did you use on Sammy? Was it topical?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 26 days ago.

Also, how long ago was it used?

topical and it was two days ago
Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 26 days ago.

I am so sorry for the delay. I hope you are still there. Your reply did not show up until I checked my personal email and there it was.

For any topical product bathe him in a mild shampoo, like baby shampoo. Do it twice to get all the pesticide off.

If he is still vomiting 24 hours later take him to your vet who will check him for liver or kidney damage.

In the future, only give i/2 dose because your Sammy is a senior now.
