Well, I should have proof read that. Since I need tyo pay for the answer and my phone changed my wording I will try again. I have with a rescues helped saved cats and kittens from getting killed at a high kill.shelter. having asll of them inside I still am battling ear mites and fleas. I bought a galloon of wondercide. But the whole cat has to be treated, like soaked basically. A rescue promised to help me as I have 30 rescues. They gave me capstar 11.4 mg. I treated about 15 so far one is drooling. I have seen this with topical but not pulls. I do use natural products on them ususally. I have ***** ***** pet shampoo. I need to get the fleas off of them without them getting sick. I cannot adopt any until they are flea free of course. I have 2 cats that sleep high now in a door and a closet rod. It's blizzare.

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. The capstar might be upsetting his stomach a little bit. I would recommend giving an antacid Pepcid (0.25mg/lb) every 12 hours for 1-2 days. If that doesn't help, I would recommend taking the cat to the vet for further evaluation.

Why do they drool? How can I help that?
Cat Vet: Dr. Schmidt, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago
I should add Capstar will only kill the fleas for 24 hours, you will need a monthly preventative to keep them prevented for longer term.

Cat Vet: Dr. Schmidt, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago
The drool is most likely because of nausea from the capstar. I would try the Pepcid and see if that helps.

Good afternoon, JACustomer. Checking in to see how your companions are doing at this time. Has the drooling resolved? Was the Pepcid helpful?

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.
