Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Did she have any drooling?

How is her appetite? Any vomiting or diarrhea?

What was the listed active ingredient in the product you have?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Active ingred: imiprothin. 0.060% and Cypermethrin. 0.100%..I bathed her last night to negate any possible contact residue so she wouldn't lick herself anymore. Shows no symptoms that you describe. Aye and drank normally this morning
Expert:  Dr. B. replied 1 year ago.

Hi again,

I am very glad to hear that she has eaten and drank without issue and is showing no signs. This is very positive and suggests that she didn't ingest a significant amount of the spray. If she had, we'd expect to have seen seen drooling, GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea, appetite loss), lethargy, and wobbliness. In severe cases, we can also see twitching, tremors, and seizures. But again if you have seen none of the signs I asked about and it has been a good few hours since exposure, then we'd not be worried here for her. We'd want to keep an eye for the 24 hours after her exposure but would expect this to do no harm.

I hope this information is helpful.

If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!

All the best,

Dr. B.
