Hello! I just rescued a kitten 2 weeks ago, and she is infested in fleas, gave her a flea bath but still missed some fleas. It's not that much now but I do want to give her flea treatment cause I don't want to bath her again. The fleas has also come to my bed cause she sleeps there a lot, and everymorning I'd get a new flea bite which is not nice 😂. And I don't want her to become anemic either. She's luckily doing fine with lots of energy, Istg she's the most hyper kitten I ever see 😂.
But yes, since i just administered pyrantel to her, and she just got to 2 pounds/ 1kg. I wanted to finally gave her a flea treatment. I was thinking to use advocate/revolution, but I'm not sure since it overlapped with pyrantel (they treat round and hookworms too) so I was thinking of revolution.
Is it safe for kittens? Also how much should I gave her?

You can use Frontline but a kitten dose, which is .03 mL. The regular does for adult cats is .05mL.

When you gave her a bath, what did you use?
Blue Dawn dish soap stuns fleas, making them easier to get out with a flea comb. We use it all the time at the shelter.
Just be careful because some flea meds aren't meant for tiny kittens.

I used soft baby dish soap because there's no dawn dish soap here, I do get a lot of the fleas but not all of them, I might consider buying another flea comb but the plastic one cause it's hard to get it with my current flea comb.

alright then! is it 0.3 ml or 0.03 ml btw? I'm kinda confused

It is NOT .3 mLs. It is .03 mLs. A TINY amount. You take one tube of Frontline and pour it into another vessel, then, using a 1 mL syringe, you fill the syringe to the .03 mL mark, then apply. You store the rest safely.

If that is too complicated, just buy Advantage II for Kittens. It has the exact amount in each tube for kittens 8 weeks and up. Much simpler!

Okay thenn! There are no advantage sold in my country so I'm gonna use frontline, I do have the syringe, I was just making sure it's 0.03 ml not 0.3 ml 😅 since I usually wrote the 0 before the period so I'm confused at first because you only write .03 not 0.03, thank you for the info!
