  1. A recent story of a cat in intensive care after a minoxidil spill in the home led me to do some research. Hopefully spreading this info can be of help to others!

    > Cat owners can use minoxidil but not without common sense and appropriate precautions. Minoxidil must not be applied directly to cats and cats should not have the opportunity to play with or lick the hair (or pillows) of owners who have applied minoxidil to their scalps as a treatment for their own hair loss. Cats must never come into contact with the actual minoxidil bottle or canister.
