ASK DR.CLAIRE

My 10 day old kitten has a couple of fleas. What do I do?

Frontline spray is registered for kittens from 2 days of age and older and is a great way to rid fleas. Follow the instructions closely on the bottle.

There are many other products for flea control available, but they may not be registered for use at such a young age. Often they require the kitten to be 6 or 8 weeks old. Read the manufacturers directions carefully.

It’s really important to treat the environment too, washing bedding, vacuuming daily and regular flea combing of your kitten.
