During treatment with Felimazole, it is stated, among other things, that you should wash your hands after giving the medicine and be careful when emptying the litter box.
If you treat a cat with Felimazole, how does it affect other cats living in the same household?
I can not find any information about it.
Is it ok for them to eat / drink from the same plate and fulfill their needs in the same boxes?
Given that people should be extra careful with hygiene, it would be interesting to know if other animals should be taken into account in any way.
What about cat litter?
The drug is excreted via the urine and ends up in the cat boxes where both 2 healthy and a sick cat during treatment trample around.
Will the other cats react to the substance and is it dangerous for them?
If so, is there special cat litter or what do you do?
Many thanks for answering previous questions! 🙂
No, there are no specific recommendations for cats living together.
There are, as far as I know, no described side effects or injuries in healthy cats in the same household as a Felimazole-treated cat.
I therefore do not see any reason to worry about the other healthy cats even if they use the same box and eat from the same bowls.
The only thing you should perhaps be careful with are pregnant female cats – then it can be good to have separate boxes.
