My daughter gave half of a 50 lb dog frontline to ab10 week old kitten. It seems lathargic. What should we do.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the kitten. What is the dog's name?

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. Welcome to JustAnswer! I’d like to help with your concerns regarding Stevey.

Dog Frontline can be VERY dangerous for cats, especially small kittens.

I recommend bathing Stevey immediately in dish soap (like Dawn).

You need to use wet him thoroughly and then lather him with the dish soap to strip all of the Frontline product from his body.

When was it applied?

Once Stevey has been bathed, I recommend monitoring him very closely. Once decontaminated (bathed), most cats exposed to large doses of Frontline do well, but I recommeng watching him closely for vomiting, stumbling or tremors.
