Wish I had read this first. Cat started frothing at the mouth and having spasms. Thought he was going to die!
Warning all pet owners. This product made my cat froth at the mouth and have spasms. I genuinely thought he was about to die. I got it off in the shower and I will now be closely monitoring my amazing pet. Do NOT recommend.
Kitten foaming at mouth now lying on the floor traumatised hardly moving
Kitten started foaming at mouth rethink in pain.. I washed the product toff his neck immediately... now he is lying on the floor traumatised hardly moving . Rang a vet friend freaking out and friend says its the damn exelpet and it should be banned as some cats have died. WHY ARE THEY STILL SELLING THIS PRODUCT ??????? RSPCA DO SOMETHING
it seems alright
Have to agree with everyone here that is was not a pleasant treatment experience. My cat was terrified just smelling the paste. I put it in by three times and he drooled a lot. But he didnt spit it out that much, just a little bit. It seems to work just fine, his poo looks normal at least. But I will try somethingmore peaceful next time.
Do not use. I put this paste on my cats fur as per packet instruction and he hated it, I had to bath him to get it off, and still a horrible yellow stain remains on his fur. My cat has not eaten anything for 2 days now, and is constantly meowing. This product is dangerous and poor quality, and I made a big mistake using it!
I wish I had read this review before giving this dreadful Exelpet all-wormer to my beautiful cat: she has been unsettled for 3 days now after the dewormer and has difficulty with defecating, her tummy is swollen and she keeps licking her 'behind' that looks very irritated. She is off her food, lethargic, clingy. This product should be banned worldwide.
Carpet stained and cat not impressed!!
I had not read any reviews before trying to administer this paste. Wish I had as not a pleasant experience for my cat or the carpet as the cat proceeded to run through the house flicking it off. I had put the paste on her leg so he could lick it off - as per instructions on pack but he hated the taste and ran around madly trying to get the paste of his body. Purchased at Woolworths
Should be banned
I lost a kitty to that horrible stuff. My poor baby who i have has as a companion passed away from basically drowning in vomit i tried to catch her but she ran away and i found her dead the next morning with poo and vomit all on the floor this is horrible stuff and should be banned
If i could give less than 1 star i would.
Not even half the dose was given to my cat and within 30 seconds he was jumping 4 ft in the air foaming from the mouth and panicking to say the absolute least! The worst experience seeing an animal that distraught.
Never EVER will i purchase not only this product, but ANY from this brand.
It's poison. Just don't.
If you put something in your mouth and it was so bad that you went into a violent panic, foamed at the mouth and vomited for the rest of the night, you'd say it was poison, right? Both cats reacted this way without even swallowing any of it. This product should simply be banned.
I didn't administer how you guys did, I mixed the dose in with my kittens food. They were hesitant at first but they ate their dinner and there was no traumatising experience for my babies - the only side affect I can report is that their poo went a little funny but nothing serious.
Thanks so much for your "trusted" brand name wormer. What essentially cost me $12 has now cost $300 in vet bills. Less than 12 hours after putting my baby of 5 months old through hell of administering less than 1ml, he was spewing and urinating blood. Will never buy your products again and I intend taking this further.
Turn Your Pet Cat Into A Monster With This Product!
I hate this product. My docile, loving moggy turns into a vicious, drooling, yowling monster trying to administer the paste.
And THEN he starts frothing at the mouth and drooling.
Had to wash all of my clothes, all of the cat (he thought I was drowning him because the mess was worst on his face), and then mop the laundry afterwards.
Literally the worst product I have ever bought.
Seems To Work, BUT...
I agree that it's a traumatic experience to try to get the cats to accept it - certainly is for my 3 cats and me. Someone suggested putting it on their legs, paws or somewhere else they could reach to lick it off and that does make it a bit easier, but i'm not too happy with that solution and i don't think my furkids are, either....will try something else now :(
It does work...
I have to agree with a majority of the reviews here that this product really does make for a terrible, traumatising experience. My cat is incredibly affable and placid, and we ended up having to swaddle her in order to try and administer it. Eyes watering, gagging noises - it really was upsetting. I will be trying out other brands in three months time.
However, all that said- it works. I bought it originally to see if it would clear up some licking and general malaise symptoms. If you can manage to get your cat the full (or almost) dose, i...t does seem to work as her symptoms disappeared within a few days. I think it's important to point out to others on this page that the reason you're trying to force feed this to you cat is for their benefit. If you don't like it, buy something that tastes better, but you really can't validate any claims about it 'not working at all'.
Depends on the cat
I gave this product to four of my cats, two of them were very difficult and took a long time, one was downright impossible, she shook and flailed and frothed at the mouth and wouldn't have anything to do with it. And one just laid back, ate it and didn't have a fuss at all, had every last drop. I would recommend tablets instead.
