Sad Story: Unfortunate Cat

I'm not sure what kind of cat, but I don't think it matters but it was a story my co-worker had told me. She said that one of her dogs had passed away, so she had some kind of heart-worm or flea medicine from the veterinarian for the dog. She decided to use the medicine on the cat, and the cat died but not before a trip to the vet. The vet told her that was one of the dumbest things you could ever do. The ironic thing is that her cat's name was Lucky.

  2. Losing one pet is bad enough, but two is horrible. Dog and cats do need the same thing.

  10. Yeah...probably best to ask your vet before giving any medication to a dog that was meant for another animal. (Especially from dog to cat!)

  11. Very sad, and this could have been avoided had she asked a veterinarian before giving the medication. I used to work in a pet supply store (only sold supplies, not the animals), and I took a correspondence course in animal sciences, so I am pretty knowledgeable about pets, especially cats, dogs and birds, and their health. Even with the knowledge that I have I still consult a veterinarian, as they are the doctor and have more knowledge and training than I.
