    Cheap flea treatments may kill your cat

    NewsCat Health NewsMonday 30 May 2011

    Cat owners are being warned about treating their felines for fleas after several cats have been admitted to the vets in need of emergency care.

    Drove Veterinary Hospital has reported an increase in pets, particularly cats, being admitted in the past few weeks for life-saving treatment after receiving toxic doses of shop-bought flea treatment. The pet owners are urged to read the label and instructions of permethrin-based products as it might be fatal for cats.

    If you notice muscular tremors, lethargy and seizures you should contact your vet immediately.
