(eg. description of the frequency and severity of the symptoms

1-34406884 - The reporter, a pet owner, indicated that her cat was exposed to a dog spot-on insecticide containing the active ingredient permethrin. The reporter states that the product was applied to her 3-year-old, 9 pound, male domestic longhair cat one day prior to initial contact with the registrant. Shortly after the product was applied the cat started shaking. The pet owner immediately bathed the cat with water two times and then with water and hand soap. At the time of initial contact the reporter indicated that the cat was still shaking but was eating, drinking and walking normally. The reporter was advised that per package labeling this product is meant for dogs and should not be applied to cats. Immediate veterinary care was recommended. The reporter could not be reached for follow-up. No further information is available.
