Not for oral use. Never use on irritated skin. On some cats, matted, stiff hair or an oily, damp look of the hair might be seen at the treatment site. This is just transient and has no bearing on the product's efficacy or safety. Allow 30 minutes before allowing the cat to lick the application site or getting this substance in the cat's eyes or mouth. Grooming will reduce the chance of swallowing by treating the base of the skull. Keep pets apart in houses with many pets to avoid licking the application site.
If overdose occurs, please contact your local pet hospital or emergency pet clinic immediately.
