Customer Question
My grandson sprayed Lysol...

My grandson sprayed Lysol on our cat, we cleaned him off as much as he would allow but now, several hours later, it is clear that his tongue is very swollen. How worried should we be?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?

He is two year old main coon that is pretty sure he is the boss around here.

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

It sounds like he ingested a fair amount

I do worry in this situation as the phenols in the lysol can be quite caustic to the mucus membranes of the mouth and esophagus

Is he having trouble breathing?

If he is having trouble breathing then he should go to the ER tonight

They will get you medications to protect the mucus membranes and to bring down the swelling
