frontline/advantage flea killers

I have a calico cat 10lbs 8years old, and being an indoor cat, I felt that I did not have to apply any flea killer on her. Well I had a little tube and decide to apply it on her just in case. Well after 24 hrs, and $1800 later, she is still at the vet, after spending $850 at the emergency to have her bathed, IV put in, catheter, medication, etc. Was told to take her to my regular vet. She is still has the tremors, shakes, cant get up, and weak. Was told I will have to take her back to the emergency vet tonight to keep her on IV over night. No such warning labels on the tube about the repercussions. Don't even know wwhether she will make it. Bottom line, whether you use Harz, Frontline, etc.
Be careful. Cat /dog may become ill. It attackes the nervous system. And it is killing me to think how stupid I was to apply this on my healthy cat!

response to frontline/advantage

I am sorry, but that post seemed vague. My Dad is a semi-retired Veterinarian, and we use Frontline on our cats. The first time I applied it, I didn't hit the spot quite right, and one of our cats had a slight reaction to it, (shakes, foaming mouth). But the last treatments were applied correctly, with no problem. Any Hartz product is very bad for any pet, I would highly recommend not using it. Also, since you had one tube lying around, is it possible the medication had expired?
