Cat Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 9 days ago

That is unusual to see signs

Let remove any residue with dish wash soap and water

It is likely all in the system by now though

These signs will resolve over the eveninig

this product contains permethrin isnt that toxic to cats not sure on eatting or drinking the rapid breathing and twitch is concerning
Cat Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 9 days ago

Yes but you mentioned that you only applied one or two drops

If the whole tube had been applied I would have you at the ER by now

We should wash the area with the dish wash detergent now and then dry thoroughly

Repeat 15 minutes after

Update me when you are done
