1-19180202: A reporter (cat owner) called on 07/15/2009 to report the exposure of her 3 cats to a flea egg and larvae product containing the active ingredient Methoprene. According to the reporter, the product was applied to the cats 2 hours prior to the report. Cat #1 (1st Subform III) was panting and running around agitated. Cat #2 (2nd Subform III) was hiding. The third cat was asymptomatic. The reporter was advised that if the cats seem uncomfortable with the product on their skin to bathe them with hand dish soap and see a veterinarian should signs persist or worsen. The reporter was also advised that the product is not intended for use on cats older than 10 years of age, and that she should speak with her veterinarian about products that can be used on Cat #2. On follow up, the reporter stated that she wiped the cats with a wet washcloth but did not bathe them. The signs resolved. No further information was obtained.
