Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Wylie. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Do you know what the actual chemical was that he was sprayed with? For some insecticides, a bath is all you need to do. For others, you may need to treat with an antidote, or give medication to control the symptoms.
If it was fipronil, or imidacloprid a bath is enough. If it was a pyrethrin, he may have tremors that may resolve in a day or so or be severe enough to require treatment with methocarbamol.
Is he showing any symptoms?
Thanks for that information. There are two ingredients in this product, one is the imidacloprid I mentioned before, and washing in Dawn will have taken care of this.
The other is β-cyfluthrin. It can be toxic to cats, but according to my drug resources, it should also be OK: "at the concentrations used in residential settings it is unlikely to cause a problem, even for cats."
Your quick thinking of bathing in Dawn was the best thing to do. He should be OK, but watch for things like his shaking his paws, tremors, shaking, etc. If he continues to seem normal and shows no symptoms, he should be find.
Sorry, should be fine. Let me know if I can help with or answer anything else.
