Word to the Wise: Permethrin Poisons Cats!

It's definitely flea and tick season, and I wanted to share a special tip for all you kitty owners – or those that have cats and dogs in your furry fam! Although some solutions are meant for both, never use one made just for dogs on cats as it can contain an ingredient that's fatal to felines. If your meds include Permethrin, keep them far out of kitty's reach! To learn about this chemical


Permethrin is an insecticide that's highly toxic and can cause permethrin toxicosis in cats with symptoms including tremors, seizures, and difficulty walking. If Fido and Fluffy are gonna come in contact with each other, ask your vet for products without this ingredient to be on the safe side!
