Q: Is there a safe flea treatment for otherwise healthy six-week-old kittens? We also have adult cats in the garage, but not around the kittens.
A: Sorry you are having trouble with fleas. There are a few remedies you can try.
Wash the babies with dish soap. Leave the lather on a few minutes. It will smother the fleas. Use a flea comb and drop the fleas in a cup of water with alcohol.
You can use Advantage II on the adults, and all the fleas in the house will die. Or try diatomaceous earth, which you can get at a garden shop or buy online.
