licked pyrethian from fur,ataxic

RebeccaVet :

Hello1

RebeccaVet :

I am sorry to hear about your cat.

RebeccaVet :

My name isXXXXX am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.

RebeccaVet :

Pyrethrins are pretty toxic to cats. They do not even have to lick it; just putting it on them is enought.

RebeccaVet :

So, the first thing is to bathe your cat and remove any remaining pyrethrin, if you have not already done this.

RebeccaVet :

Dawn dish detergent is best for this, followed by a good rinse and drying.

RebeccaVet :

Ataxia is what is seen with pyrethrin poisoning.

RebeccaVet :

There is no antidote, only removing as much pyrethrin from the body, and time.

RebeccaVet :

If there are serious tremors, your veterinarian could give or prescribe methocarbamol for that.

RebeccaVet :

I see you did wash her. If it was not in Dawn, I would repeat it.

RebeccaVet :

Otherwise, time is the treatment.

RebeccaVet :

Will your cat eat and drink?

RebeccaVet :
