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.

That's a horrible story. Good golly.

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

It's sad to lose a pet; like losing a member of the family

Pat Hatt said...

Awful to loose a pet indeed, but one at ones own hands is even worse

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!)

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.
