Customer Question

My cat just jumped up onto the sofa and nose butted my ciggies at the same time. I panicked and rubbed a baby wipe across his nose! He seems OK! And is now sitting on the top of my sofa, my radiator!...any advice, as he is a old boy,17 years, and he is fragile,as it is.😕
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Lol! GINGER!
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about GINGER?
Customer: Well! He has been to the Pdsa in the last 2 years, due to bad breath!! They have on 2 occations operated on him and extracted teeth! But alas he has still terrible breath, and gets a lot of drooling from his mouth..

Not to worry! There's nothing toxic to cats in that baby wipe. He probably wonders why he's smelling baby wipe, however! There's no need to treat Ginger in any manner.

Happy new year!
