Adverse Reaction in Cats to Glow Jewelry

 

Treatment

 

Generally, no treatment is needed for cats that ingest glow jewelry. However, providing water or food to diminish the taste of the glow stick/jewelry can be useful in alleviating symptoms. Washing the chemical off of your cat’s fur and skin with shampoo and water is also recommended. Taking your pet into a darkened room can help you locate the chemical on your cat’s fur and skin to aid in removal.

 

Prevention

 

The best way to prevent accidental ingestion is to keep glow sticks and glow jewelry out of your cat's reach.
