Question:

My cat ate a Heartgard Plus chewy intended for my dog. What should I do?

Answer:

I wish I knew which size (small, medium or large) but none are considered toxic. The same active ingredient is in the cat heartgard which has about the same amount of active ingredient in the medium size actually.

TopicWhat to do if poisoned

Question:

Symptoms - urinated in bed - lying dead still on the ground - still breathing - whimpers when touching her stomach

Answer:

Her symptoms are severe enough that I would recommend going ahead and seeing your local veterinarian for an exam and some bloodwork to see exactly what is going on and if she was poisoned, a better idea of what she was poisoned with so you can make a plan about how to best treat her.

TopicCat ate lantana
vet-qa-signature
Question:

I just found out my cat ate lantana last week. He has vomited every day and seems a bit lethargic. Is there anytime vet can do for him now?

Answer:

Probably - they will run some bloodwork first to confirm that is what is causing the vomiting and then they'll best know how to treat him. Some fluids and antinausea medication will definitely help him feel better.

Question:

My cat was salivating and having seizure, it was given treatment but hasn't pooped or vomited, it's been more than 24 hours, what do I do? Is there anything I can give to aid recovery?

Answer:

It entirely depends on what s/he may have been poisoned with. S/he needs bloodwork to see why she is seizuring so you can specifically treat the root cause, so have your veterinarian run that blood work if she continues to have problems.

TopicClove Oil Toxicity
vet-qa-signature
Question:

In my reading, I find articles that say clove oil is toxic for dogs and other articles that say it's non-toxic. I'm trying to find a weed killer that's safe to use in my yard where my dog plays. Several weed killers that say they're pet-friendly contain clove oil (not as a main ingredient). Can you clear this up for me?

Answer:

Contact a veterinary toxicologist for the best advice about that - often found at your local veterinary school or on sites like JustAnswer.com or ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Phone Number: 1-(888) 426-4435.

Question:

What should I do if I believe my cat has been poisoned multiple times by tea tree oil? He has been to the vet for back leg weakness and trouble walking. They don’t believe it is poisoning but I just found out he was exposed to it. His symptoms are limping, weakness in both hind legs, diarrhea, vomiting, anemia.

Answer:

Start by having your veterinarian check him out and run some blood work - this will rule out other causes as well.

TopicPossible poisoning by decorative rabbit fur
vet-qa-signature
Question:

My cat has been licking the rabbit fur on my bedroom slippers. Now she is vomiting and lethargic. Could she have been poisoned by the fur?

Answer:

That's not very likely, but since I can't test your slipper, I can't say for sure. I do know that there are MANY reasons that they will vomit: too many to start listing, but here is a link to our article about digestive problems in cats, potential causes and treatments: https://www.1800petmeds.com/education/common-digestive-problems-cats-30.html
