I gave my 2 year old cat a dose of Revolution this evening.

Customer Question
I gave my 2...

I gave my 2 year old cat a dose of Revolution this evening. She didn’t get the whole dose because she ran away. But she is not acting right. Her breathing is around 50 breaths a minute. She’s not panting. She is currently resting beside me and purring. Just breathing a little fast. She gets regular checks ups with her vet. Should I be concerned or just wait and see how she is after the revolution has had time to settle in her system?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?

I don’t think so

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your cat, please? Adverse effects from selamectin (Revolution) are rare. Approximately 1% of cats showed a transient, localized alopecia at the area of administration. Other rare effects reported include diarrhea, vomiting, muscle tremors, anorexia, pruritis (itchiness)/urticaria (allergic skin reaction), erythema (redness of the skin), lethargy, salivation, and tachypnea (increased respiratory rate).

Both of my cats (litter mates) breathe faster than I think they should but I don’t think it’s from the revolution. I had scented wall air fresheners all about the house and I just read last night that they changed cause respiratory problems in cats. The cats act fine they run and play normally but when laying around is when I notice that they breathe faster than they should. I have removed all of the plugins and thrown them away. Will their breathing ever get better or have I permanently damaged my babies?
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Thank you for the additional information. I'm not aware of any studies concerning air freshener toxicity in cats but in general cats don't well tolerate essential oils as are present in many air fresheners. Lasting damage isn't expected, however. If fresheners were the culprit I would expect normalizing of their respiratory rate within a few days. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
