    Pet owners, beware!

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an official warning that topical pain medications containing flurbiprofen are dangerous to animals, especially cats.
    Flurbiprofen, one of many non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), is used to treat to relieve the symptoms of arthritis and muscle pain, but even small amounts of the drug can be fatal to feline friends. Most troubling, however, is not that owners carelessly left out their medicine and the cats got into it, or that it was applied directly to the cats, but that trace amounts people applied to themselves then came into contact with their pets and proved deadly.
    Two households were impacted.

    This was not a staple in my house, so I had to look it up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flurbiprofen

    I think it might be prescription only. It has a flouride molecule in the chemical formula on Wiki so beware.......
