Are you seeing any muscle tremors now?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Shaking and Tremors and it's been 3 hours ago but it was on my dog and then I guess the cat rub it off my dog so we just figured it out
Expert:  Dr. Gary replied 2 months ago.

If there are tremors, then the first thing to do is bathe the cat in dawn dish soap. That will remove any further oily residue on him.

After that, you really should go to a vet where they can give Methocarbamol. This is a muscle relaxant that helps to stop the tremors. Most cats signs will resolve over 12-24 hours with aggressive care.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
