Post Re: dog flea drops can KILL cats
Bob Martin flea drops for dogs (http://www.bobmartin.co.uk/) are SERIOUSLY toxic to cats.
There is an ingredient in them called permethrin, which as far as I am aware, is only in the Bob Martin brand.
If you accidentally put the dog flea drops onto your cat, it will cause them a horrible death.

Even if your cat comes into contact with a dog who has these drops put on them, it can still be toxic.

God knows how this can still be for sale.

This is NOT a scare story. My sister is a vet nurse, and she has seen this happen to many cats.
Last night, she watched another one die from this.
There is not much awareness of this.
If you have a dog, I strongly advise you to avoid this brand, especially if you also have a cat.

FROM http://www.vmd.gov.uk/General/Adverse/current.htm



Permethrin Spot On Products Can Kill Cats

The following spot on products can be deadly for cats:

Advantix Spot On Solution for Dogs
Armitage Pet Care Flea and Tick Drops for Dogs 702mg Spot-on Solution
Beaphar Dog Flea and Tick Drops, 65% w/w, Cutaneous Solution
Bio-tech’s Anti-Flea and Anti-Tick Drops for Dogs
Bio-tech’s Flea and Tick Drops for Dogs
Bob Martin Dog Spot On Solution 744mg
Bob Martin Dog Spot On Solution 1488mg
Bob Martin Flea and Tick Spot On Solution 744mg
Bob Martin Permethrin Dog Spot On
Exspot Insecticide for Dogs
Hartz Control Pet Care System One Spot Flea and Tick Remedy for Dogs
Hyperdrug Veterinary Flea and Tick Drops for Dogs 742mg Cutaneous Solution
Johnson’s Flea and Tick Drops 742mg for Puppies and Small Dogs, Cutaneous Solution
Johnson’s Insecticidal Flea and Tick Drops 742mg, Cutaneous Solution
Protect Spot Flea and Tick Drops for Dogs
Wilko Dog Flea Drops 65% w/w Cutaneous Solution

These products are intended for the treatment of fleas and ticks in dogs only. They contain permethrin, a substance that is safe for dogs but causes a toxic reaction in cats when present in spot on products, due to its concentration. Cats treated with even small amounts of spot on products containing permethrin, or allowed to groom dogs treated with any of the products in the list above, can develop nervous signs such as depression, drooling, tremors, seizures, vomiting and staggering, and can die.

Some pet owners apply spot on products containing permethrin that are indicated for use in dogs to their cats by mistake, or because they think that it is safe if they use only small amounts of the product. It is not safe to use any spot on product containing permethrin in cats. If you have applied any of the products listed above to your cat, it is important to wash off the product from the cat with water and a mild detergent and seek immediate treatment from your veterinary surgeon. Take the product package with you and show it to the veterinarian.

Yes, this is a common known fact. In fact most brands clearly state the danger on the packaging.

(note the warning on the top left of the packaging)

Post Re: dog flea drops can KILL cats
the below article would suggest it needs to be an even more common known fact

Quote:
Hundreds of cats are dying because owners are giving them powerful flea treatments designed for dogs.

Vets have warned the country’s six million cat owners about the dangers of using dog flea treatments that contain permethrin.Exposure to permethrin results in death for one in 10 cats, said the Veterinary Poisons Information Service Exposure, part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. Cats can suffer by coming into contact with a dog that has been treated with permethrin. Vets have urged pet-owners to keep flea-treated dogs away from cats for at least 72 hours and to use separate brushes and other accessories.

Permethrin triggers a violent reaction in cats. Within three hours of exposure they can suffer from nervous tics, convulsions, breathing difficulties and fits. In serious cases cats require intensive care for three or four days and without pet insurance cover, owners may face bills from £300 up to £1,500.

yes !because fleas are parasites, they feed on the blood and can take too much of animals blood, small and young animals are much more at risk and will be affected more quickly than larger animals, in larger animals it may not even be noticeable, but their health is very much at risk and ultimately their life. take the cat to a vet and or get some flea medication.

We should never use any kind of dog products on cats they are toxic..Now a days there are several natural ways such as boiling lemons and making a lemon spray that will safely repel fleas and not harm your pets..

Kitten care
flea treatments
