1-20264359: A reporter (cat owner) called on 10/01/2009 to report the exposure of 2 kittens to a flea and tick shampoo containing the active ingredients d-trans-Allethrin and NOBD. According to the reporter, the product was applied to the kittens 6 hours prior to the report. The reporter awoke to find both kittens shaking. He rinsed them with water but the signs persisted. The reporter was advised that both kittens should be bathed in a mild hand dish soap and evaluated by a veterinarian if the signs do not resolve. The reporter then stated that the shaking is so intense that he did not think the kittens would survive. The reporter was advised to take the kittens to a veterinarian immediately. On follow up on 10/02/2009, the reporter stated that the kittens were taken to a veterinarian but treatment was not pursued due to cost. The kittens were brought home where they died on 10/01/2009. The reporter was advised that the product is not indicated for use on cats. A recommendation was made to consider necropsy to determine the cause of death. NOTE: This product is not labeled for use on cats.
