i have 2 older cats that i've had for awhile and never had a flea problem. then i picked up a stray cat about 7 months old who had a mild case of fleas but nothing major, until she had kittens about a month ago. now she and the kittens have them badly.my house is infeasted. i've tryed powders,sprays,bombing. i've bathed and dipped my older cats (which worked for awhile) the treatments seem to work, but since i can't dip the mother or kittens, the problem just keeps coming back. HELP !!I also put a flea collar on the older cats until i dipped them and i just never put it back on them. now i have noticed that they are loosing their hair where the collars were. is this serious? or will they be o.k.
I recommend that you use advantage. It is safe on kittens 6 weeks of age and it is safe on the mother. Vetcare
