---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

---"I can't believe how your company understands cats so well"

Convulsions

Convulsions or seizures can be medical emergencies

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

A convulsion, sometimes called a seizure, is a general term for a variety of actions.  These can include involuntary urination or defecation, inability to move or loss of motor control and loss of consciousness in extreme cases.

Convulsions can come singly or in sequence.  If your pet has a convulsion, it is important to call your veterinarian.   If no other convulsions follow, your veterinarian may not need to see him immediately. 

Multiple convulsions and loss of consciousness are considered an emergency and you need to take your pet to the vet or emergency animal clinic immediately.

Convulsions can be caused by ingestion of fairly common household toxins.  These can include but are not limited to: pesticides, antifreeze, snail bait, gopher bait, flea treatments, chocolate, caffeine (ex. diet pills), cleaners, car batteries, swimming pool chemicals, drain cleaners, toxic plants, etc.  It is always best to tell your veterinarian what your pet has ingested so that proper treatment can be given immediately.  If possible, take the item with you to the clinic so that its exact chemical composition can be determined. 

Convulsions can also be caused by epilepsy in cats and dogs.  It is important to make sure that your pet does not harm himself during a convulsion.  You can place a light towel or blanket over him to make sure he does not hit a hard surface.
