cat drank varsol (mineral spirits)

My sister in law's cat drank varsol, was taken to the vet, flushed, given fluids, etc. Has some sort of paste they are supposed to put in his mouth. Now he walks in circles when he tries to go anywhere. Is this neurological damage? Is it permanent?

It could be neurological, and it could be permanent. Mineral spirits can cause both in humans,'s wicked stuff.

I hope he recovers! :pray: What was the prognosis? I hope this is just a temporary part of his recovery :fingerscr
