The same thing has happened to one of my cats. I put the Assurity on her yesterday around 3 pm and when I woke up around 1:45 this morning to go to bathroom I noticed she was sitting oddly and when I tried to get her to stand up she didn't have any control of her back legs. Our vet doesn't open until 8:30 so around 8 this morning when I read your post my boyfriend and I immediately washed the assurity off of her before taking her to vet. They seem to think it may be a blood clot even though she doesn't present any of the other associated symptoms. They have had her on IV fluids all day trying to flush her system but are still unsure of what is causing her lack of control. They spoke with people from the manufacturer who are (of course saying) it is not from their product. Unforunately I don't have unlimited funds to have an echocardiogram done and all of the other tests needed to rule out heart disease or a slipped disc, etc. How soon after you put the mediciation on your cat did he lose control of his legs?

up with. Told us the only side effect was the loss of hair where it was applied.
She never lost her hair!
The day before she died we took her to our vet to find out what was wrong with her. She had quit eating, drinking, could not use her back legs, would fall over and was listless. Our vet thought it might be due to her having had a tooth removed 4 weeks earlier with a dental.
When our vet looked up the adverse side effects our cat, Foxy had all but one. No diarrhea. when she came to one of the words she had a wide open eye affect and her hand went to her face. I have never seen the word before, so I asked her. She told us the word was for not being able to walk!
I could not afford the necropsy on our cat, but between our vet and us we
believe that Foxy died from Assurity.
