I just adopted a kitten yesterday. She (Tink) is about one month old. I saw a flea scurry across the under part of her leg and one near her behind, thats it.
I have flea medicine,the kind you put between their shoulder blades. It's a 3 month treatment, but I only have 2 tubes, which would be a 2 month treatment.
Anyway, it says not to use it until the kitten is 12 weeks and she's about 6 weeks.
I have 2 other kittens who are 3 months old and I dont want the fleas to spread or get worse. Will it really hurt the kitten to put it on now or put half the tub or just alittle of it, or is it a big no no? i've never used flea medication before and dont know its effects, except that it kills fleas and larvae. Any advice would help. Are there any home remedies that are safer? I just dont want to wait 6 wks and all THREE of the cats have fleas...but if i have to i guess i have to, haha, THANKS!
