The area where I applied the ointment on the kitten's neck now has a bump/mass there. I'm not sure if fleas were still there b4 i applied it, but the bump wasn't there b4 I put it on. Is the kitten in any danger..?? I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO...

    take you cat to the vet as soon as possible yes he could be in danger and it could just be an abscess but get him to the vet

    Dawn is extremely toxic ...never use household ingredients on animals. Cats in particular have completely different immune systems than other animals so when purchasing things, make sure it is specifically for cats. Definitely take him to the vet to make sure he's ok. Hope everything turns out ok.
