Customer Question

I have three kittens 12 weeks old. They have fleas. Today I bought PetArmor Flea and Tic shampoo at the store. About 45 minutes ago I washed them all with it. THEN I noticed the "peel here" on the sticker and read that I should not bathe them with this product unless they are six months old. I repeated their bath (within 30 minutes) with Dawn Ultra dishwashing liquid - as recommended by our local 24 hour vet clinic. Is there anything else I can do?
What should I look for?

Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

I am so glad that you did the Dawn bath so quickly! If they are fine now, there is likely not going to be a problem. This absorbs quickly and would cause tremors and seizures. If they are not having any symptoms and you already bathed them again, you are likely in the clear. I would wait another half hour, and if there are no tremors, you are safe to go to bed. (unless it's not midnight where you live like it is here... lol)

I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Bonuses are not necessary, but are appreciated, as they go directly to me rather than to the website. Best of luck.
