I recently lost my cat Fluffy he was 7 years old and very healthy I also have a cat named Moe he is 3 years old
I bought the sergeants brand flea drops and applied them to both my cats on Sunday August 17th 2008.
About 3 am on August 19th I got up to use the bathroom and noticed my cat Moe laying on the floor something just didn’t seem right I picked him up and he was limp eyes dilated and drooling excessively (he had a seizure I just didnt know it yet),I checked over fluffy he seemed fine well about a half hour to an hour later I heard alot of noise and went to find my cat fluffy having a seizure it was pretty bad afterward I held him for about an hour once he seemed fine I decided to bath him and moe thinking it was the drops that caused the seizure after the bath I held him some more and then decided to put him down in a quiet area a few moments later he had another seizure this was about 7 am I called the vet and got him in right away he told me about the pestiside that is in these over the counter flea meds and confirmed that is what was wrong with my cats and he gave them both shots to help the seizures stop, 2 hours later Fluffy was just getting worse and the vet said he was dying so I chose to put him to sleep I held his paw and told him I loved him and that I was sorry this happened to him and then he was gone ……
Moe is going to be ok he is getting beter he is still at the vet but he will make it out of this alive thank god this did not claim the life of both my cats
I hope this helps you get these products taken off the shelf let me know what else I can do also ! I am in this fight for Fluffy and Moe so hopefully I can help prevent this from happening to someone elses pet
