Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

The main risk really is from direct handling of the medication. Therefore, we'd not want you handling it(or wearing gloves if you did at all. Otherwise, the metabolites from this are passed in urine and feces. So, it'd be ideal to again avoid or wear gloves while in contact with these. Finally, as long as she isn't having accidents in the bed, we'd not be overly worried about her sleeping there. The trace amounts that she could have on herself (from licking her genitals and then coat) would be minimal and not hold a significant risk here. So, as long as she isn't passing urine or feces that you could come in contact with while sleeping, she can can stay where she is at night and we'd just want to take care with you handling the tablets and her wastes.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
