Side Effects

Monitor your cat after application. Accidental ingestion by the cat may cause intermittent excess salivation. Other immediate post-treatment observations may include licking the face, shaking the head and squinting. In rare cases, application site reactions (e.g. scratching, redness, hair loss) may occur. These effects usually resolve without requiring treatment. Rare cases (fewer than 1 in 1,000) of neurological signs (e.g. incoordination, tremor, impaired balance, convulsions, dilated pupils, and impaired vision) and/or vomiting and very rare cases (fewer than 1 in 10,000) of decreased appetite, lethargy, hyperactivity, or vocalization may occur. These effects will generally resolve with supportive treatment. If these or other side effects occur consult a veterinarian immediately.
