Keep Your Cats Away!
Followed the directions exactly as on the packaging in applying this to my kitten. Not only did he completely stop eating or drinking, but began shaking uncontrollably and nearly died. Judging by the rest of these reviews, were just lucky to have him on prescription food and appetite pills. As soon as I called the vet, they knew straight away that it was going to be an issue with flea powder, as it contains a substance called pyrethrin known to be TOXIC to cats. Ridiculous to say this product is safe for cats use, my kitten nearly died today!
DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!
My friend rang me at 11.30pm Friday night frantic because the cat was convulsing - we found an after hours vet and the cat is in TOXIC SHOCK and in an INDUCED COMA caused by using this flea powder on the carpet in the areas the cat uses. This flea power wasn't even put on the cat - just the carpet. The vet said he had seen this several times and that the Total Care flea powder should not be on the market. I spoke to my vet the next day and she said much the same thing. The cat is on a drip and coming round and hopefully will be home tomorro...w. Just need to wait and see if there is any brain damage. My friend had to go out and buy a carpet shampooer to clean all the carpets in her house. Fortunately, these people can afford to do all this for their cat. I wouldn't be able to afford it. Do not buy this product.
Questions & Answers
Is this bad for your cats??? I used this product on my cats and wanted to see if it will actually work but have discovered that some comments say it is toxic. Does this product make your cat ill??
It can make some cats very sick. My friend sprinkled it on the carpet in one corner of one room and her cat later went into that room and later started to fit and collapse. $2000 plus later at the vets after 2 days in hospital the vet told her that he had seen this before and recommended his patients didn't use this product under any circumstances. Luckily my friend hadn't put this powder on the cat or it would probably have died.
