The owner is concerned for malicious poisoning, or the Round up or Mr. Clean The remaining group that appear healthy have been retested for FELV and are neg. DVM is unsure of their vaccination status but they do not seem to have fleas. Owner wanted DVM to inquire what tests could be run to see if the Mr. Clean or Round up were responsible for the cats getting sick? Neither of the agents would be expected to cause death if used per label. If ingested some GI signs would have been seen. Discussed infectious rule outs like Mycoplasma hemofelis and panleuk. Would want to be sure there is no rodenticides being used where the cats live.
