Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. IF YOU GET REQUEST FOR A PHONE CALL, IT IS FROM THE WEBSITE AND NOT MYSELF. JUST IGNORE IT. If due to the Frontline, it is possible that this may last for a few days to a couple weeks. It just depends. In most cases, the best course of action to hospitalize them on intravenous fluids and supportive care, including any medications to control tremors. You are limited on what you can do at home for this. I would start by bathing in with Dawn dish soap. You may need to do it multiple times. It will help to wash off the Frontline. From there, you need to make sure he can eat and drink on his own. If he can't, the best option is hospitalization, otherwise you can try to syringe food and water into him. Given his condition, it would be safer to keep him inside or in a confined area. He would be very prone to injuring himself or attacked by another animal outside. He wouldn't be able to protect himself well. Realize that there could be other issues, such as an infection, toxin ingestion, an immune system dysfunction or brain tumor. It may be a good idea to see if your vet would put him on antibiotics and possibly steroids to be on the safe side. If he didn't check blood work on him, that would be extremely important to do. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. IF YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH MY ANSWER, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you, and we can still continue our conversation after rating.
