Hello. I am sorry to hear your kitty is not feeling well. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.

You mention he licked flea meds, was this a flea medication that you put on him? If so what brand was this and when did you put the flea meds on?

Have you noticed any muscle twitching especially on the face?

Any vomiting?

How old is he?

When did he last urinate?

If you press on his lower abdomen does he seem painful?

When did he eat last?

Does he go outside?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Adams, very little vomiting, not sure about urination , seems to be no abdomen pain, 7yrs old, not sure when he ate last. No he is an inside cat, got out about a week ago. Twitching a little shoulder area.

Hello. I apologize I had already gone off line when you responded back last night. Normally in these cases another expert would pick your question up I am not sure why no one did. How is he doing today?

Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

Was the flea med you used labled for cats or for dogs?

Have you washed it off him?
