Please, no. The poison in flea collars goes strait to the liver and the kidneys. Rid your house of fleas with dry borax in the carpets. A natural product. Please don't destroy your kitten. Keep it from harm.

Hello, Please DO NOT use a flea collar on your kitten. I have worked for a Veterinarian for over 20 years and they have all said the same thing. There are harmful toxins in the collar that will harm your kitten.

Please use Advantage as it can be used on a kitten, it can be bought at your Vet's office. When you take your baby in for his first exam/vaccines talk to your Vet about this. Good luck

Agreed, no flea collar and even on an adult cat (or dog for that matter)!

Definitely no! I agree with the rest. Talk to your vet before using any flea product on a kitten of any age. Besides, most flea collars are also a safety hazard. They do not release like a break-away collar.

Break-away collars are designed to break under pressure or weight, such as your cat's weight hanging from a branch. This prevents the collar from strangling or hanging your cat.

Past 8 weeks old for sure. Wash with like warm Dawn soap to keep the kitten clean and kill the fleas. I also use a fleas comb and drop the love fleas in a bowl of dawn dish soap.

Kittens can wear flea collars at 12 weeks. However, they can be life-threatening if not used correctly, do make sure you ask the vet how to use it.
