Flea prevention for kittens and puppies under eight weeks old can be challenging as many flea and tick products on the market today are not safe for these young ones.
Here are some recommendations:
- Bathing with a mild liquid dishwashing detergent, rinsing thoroughly, and following with through flea combing is effective. This does not provide long-term flea protection but it is a good option for very young, small, or sick patients.
- Be sure that the older dogs and cats in your household are on flea control and wash all bedding regularly.
Please discuss any questions you have with your veterinarian.
