Please, please do NOT use a flea collar! Kittens have to be at least 2-3 months old before you can use Advantage. I feel it is the safest, but read the labels online before making a choice. You have to be so careful with a baby, do your homework online and you will find a solution. Good luck. The Pet Nanny

At least a year old. If your kitten has fleas, washing it in Dawn dishwashing detergent usually kills them. Be careful not to get it in eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. Bathe the kitten gently and thoroughly once a week until the fleas are gone. You also have to wash all kitten bedding and vacuum your home thoroughly every day until the fleas are gone.
