I am sorry your cat came into contact with lily pollen. Do you know what kind of lilies? Some are more toxic than others.My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help!How long ago did this happen?
Just did some research, and washing the pollen with clear water should be sufficient.
The pollen can be as toxic as the plant, depending on the type of lily. Easter lilies are the worst.I would keep washing; use some shampoo if needed.Do you think any pollen was ingested?
Easter lilies can cause kidney failure, so if you want to treat really aggressively, I would start him on IV fluids, give activated charcoal, and monitor his kidney function, if you think he swallowed any pollen.
If you washed it off, and continue to wash until the stain is gone, and he did not ingest any, he should be OK.If he stops eating, starts to vomit, get him to your veterinarian. It might be a good idea to have blood tests tomorrow; if his kidney numbers are normal he is probably going to be OK.
I appreciate the great rating!
Please let me know how he is doing.
