The time I took Maisie to the vet and she pooped and vomited all over herself in the carrier, we stopped off at a pet shop to get some shampoo. You can see it here if you scroll down to shampoos ( Tee tree shampoo for dogs and cat )http://www.johnsons-vet.com/cats/healthcare/
It was all they had apart from colour enhancing shampoos. I asked them if it was safe for cats and was told, 'We wouldn`t sell it it if wasn`t safe, would we.' And ' Why would they make it if it wasn`t safe?'
So I just used a few drops mixed into a bowl of warm water. Maisie was and is fine but I`m not going to use it again.
How can they still be selling it if Tea tree is so bad?
