This kitty was suffering from permethrin toxicity.
Permethrin is in many flea and tick products and it is highly toxic to cats. Without medical intervention they can die.
Permethrin products are labelled for use in dogs not cats. However people all to frequently do not read product labels.
At WBVC we try to avoid permethrin based products. Tick products with permethrins are sold only to households that do not have cats. Clients are warned that permethrins can kill cats.
Below is information about many parasite prevention products. Not all are approved for use in Canada.
