on tuesday i had experienced something no pet owner wants to, oliver and bear both had been flea treated with drops only meant for dogs (a complete accident) and the drops contained something fatal to cats. bear started having the reaction first, as soon as we noticed we quickly bathed her down and bathed oliver as well even though he wasn’t having a reaction yet. bear went into a seizure and continued having one for 11 continuous hours. oliver’s reaction started shortly after his first bath, he didn’t seize continuously like bear however, he did have a few really bad seizures tho. during the time all of this started we called every animal hospital around and even the company that made the drops, all of which said there was no hope for them and that the treatment to save them would be thousands of dollars (which we don’t have) and even after the treatment it wasn’t guaranteed to even work. so we bathed them again with dawn dish soap (one of the animal hospitals said that was our best bet so that’s what we did) preparing for the worst, we stuck by them all night and finally after 11 hours of bear seizing constantly, she stopped and was only twitching and having small tremors, then she fell asleep from exhaustion. oliver was only twitching and having small tremors too at this point. through the night i continued to give them drops of water from a dropper to keep them hydrated. after a completely restless night of worrying and tears and staying by theirs sides although it was hard to watch, they slowly started to regain their strength. two days later, oliver is just about completely back to his old self and bear is still recovering but doing so amazingly. the company that made the flea treatment drops called back to check up on how they were doing and we informed them that they made it through the night and were doing amazing and they were very relieved and happy too. they both made it, it’s a true miracle!
