I had to put down my cat a couple days ago from a major

Customer Question

I had to put down my cat a couple days ago from a major stroke. I'm now worried that it was caused by my recent use of essential oils for my own autoimmune conditions. Specifically clove oil. Could clove oil (not ingested in large amount but indirectly exposed) cause a stroke or the start of blood clots? Thank you
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your cat will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your cat?
Customer: No. I just want to know if this could be a cause. Especially since I have another cat.
