9 out of 10 cats ended up in emergency hospital....one died from Advantage.
I applied the Advantage to my cats as I have many times before. This time, within hours, several of them were salivating, convulsing and having respiratory difficulties. It resulted in 9 out of 10 of them going to the emergency vet within a 3 hr to 36 hour period. One passed. I have incurred over $8,000 in emergency vet charges and hospital bills due to this. Stay Away!!!!
Please be careful with older cats
I have used flea medicine for my cats through the years so I really was not concerned when I ordered it again since my cat was spending some time outdoors and my husband had been bitten by something. My cat was 17 years old and she was doing quite well for her age, climbing onto the bed, drinking lots of water and eating well. I was traveling and ordered the medicine and my husband administered it. But I was heartbroken when about 3 weeks later she became very ill and the vet told me she was in renal failure. It can only have been the dose....I feel her body was not strong enough to handle it. I should have checked with my doctor before administering it. I am writing this in case your cat is older, please make sure he or she can handle the flea medication before administering. I miss my little kitty very much because I almost got a chance to share some more pleasure moments with her. But in her honor, I am letting you know so you take proper precautions as needed. Love from Ginger Sophia.
