Hormone Replacement Poisoning in Cats

 

Treatment

 

Symptoms are often reversible by eliminating further exposure to the medication. However, symptoms may take months to resolve completely in some cases.

 

Prevention

 

  • Women should apply hormone replacement therapy products to areas of the body that the cat is not likely to contact.
  • When applying HRT products, women should wear gloves. The gloves should be disposed of in a location inaccessible to the cat when finished.
  • Used patches and similar items should be discarded out of the cat’s reach.
