Feline poisons

Feline poisons

There are many hazards to watch out for if you have a feline.  These include your medicine cabinet such as NSAIDS (tylenol, advil, alieve) and antidepressents.  Felines cannot metabolize these products.

If you are multi-pet household, always double check your flea treatments.  Your feline cannot break down the flea treatment in the k9 products.  So make sure you don’t accidentally grab the dog’s product to put on the cat, or think you can get by using the dog’s product on the cat.  It will be a disaster.

Pesticides and insecticides we like to use on our yards and gardens can also be deadly to your feline.  Always wait 24-48 hours after application to let your feline roam in these treated areas.

Household cleaners should not be left on surfaces, toilets etc, where your feline can drink, eat or get on their feet and into their systems.  Carpet cleaners, toilet bowl cleaners, laundry detergent and drain cleaner can all be toxic to your feline.
