1-19828953: A reporter (cat owner) called on 09/08/2009 to report her cat's exposure to a flea and tick shampoo containing the active ingredients Pyrethrins, NOBD, and Piperonyl Butoxide. According to the reporter, the product was used to bathe the cat on 09/06/2009. A few hours following the bath, the cat started vomiting. At the time of the report, the cat was still vomiting and vocalizing as if he was in pain. The reporter also noted that the cat did not appear to be urinating or defecating, and that he was anorexic. The reporter was advised that the signs described are not expected with use of the product. Small ingestions of the product may result in minor, transient gastrointestinal irritation. A recommendation was made to bathe the cat in hand dish soap and have the cat evaluated by a veterinarian to assess the persistent signs. On follow up, the reporter stated that the cat was seen by a veterinarian. The cat was dehydrated and treated with IV fluids and anti-emetics. Blood work had not been run. The cat was still vomiting at the time of the follow up, and the reporter planned to take the cat back to the veterinarian for evaluation. No further information was obtained.
