Red Alert: These Flea and Tick Products Could Harm Your Cat

1 post in this topic

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Permethrin, a parasiticide, is highly toxic to cats; in fact, many, if not most spot-on flea/tick products for dogs have the potential to poison your cat
  • In 2018, the FDA issued an alert on another chemical insecticide, isoxazoline due to the potential for neurologic adverse events in dogs and cats    
  • In 2010, the EPA issued an advisory on approximately 70 spot-on flea and tick control products due to a dramatic increase in reports of skin irritation, skin burns, seizures, and death
  • For the health and safety of your pet, especially if you have a cat or small dog, it’s very wise to find natural, nontoxic pest preventives
