Gold Bond Powder, OK for cats?
I know people use Gold Bond powder on dogs, but can it be safely used on cats?
My daughter's roomate had a dog prior to my daughter moving in with a cat (which never had any fleas before). The dog is gone, but apparently he left his fleas behind. The cat has now been treated with a topical and she is going to bomb the apartment, but the cat has bites on his belly.
I read you can give 1 mg Benadryl for each pound of the cat's weight for itchiness. I wondered if some Gold Bond powder could be rubbed on the cat as well.
I would hesitate because cats groom themselves and would end up ingesting more of the powder, which has zinc in it, than I'd be comfortable with.
