Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I am sorry Baxter is having a problem.

Did you the Advantage for Cats?

Is he having any twitching?

Have you used this before?

Other than salivating how is his deamor?

Advantage yes, first time. Talks a little more than normal. Not noticed twitching.
Cat Vet: Joan, Vet Tech replied 11 months ago

Cats are very sensitive to Flea medications. I suspect Baxter may be having a Reaction to the medication. The best thing to do is to bathe him in Blue Dawn Dish soap. THis will remove the treatment and will aslo kill the fleas. This is some of the things to watch for with Flea treatments:

Drooling,.Vomiting., Diarrhea,.Uneasy,,Tremors,.Lethargy., Weakness., , seizures, ncoordination.

I think before any more issues start appearing I would bathe Baxter. Let the Vet know he had a reaction.

YOu can ask about Capstar to help with the fleas which is an oral medication.

You can use the blue Dawn to bathe Baxter and a flea comb and it is much safer for him. If the reactions get worse, then he will need to see an ER Vet. Hopefully if we get it off quickly, we can dodge more issues. Please hit reply to discuss thsi information.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
