Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please tell me which flea and tick medicine was administered. Appearing dizzy suggests intoxication by such a medicine but it isn't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of intoxication. We see vestibular (balance) disorders in cats and cats who are profoundly anemic or ill with metabolic disorders appearing "dizzy" as well. Please let me know what you're seeing which you're describing as "dizzy".
