Hey everyone haven't been on here much more or less just been reading on my cellphone which for some crappy reason doesn't let me reply to threads
Anyways I was reading a few weeks ago someone posted that their dog gave birth and had fleas or dog was pregnant and had fleas?? I can't find the thread again but someone else said that Advantage was safe to use on puppies as young as 2 days old..............
I contacted the bayer company today who makes advantage from the recommendation of my vet to find out about using it on a mother cat and kittens who my mom is fostering for a few weeks who have fleas and brought fleas in my house
The vet that works for bayer said DO NOT
use advantage on puppies under 6 weeks of age and kittens under 8 weeks of age because the advantage is alcohol based and because their skin isn't developed fully the alcohol can burn their skin and cause HYPOTHERMIA!!!!
She said it's fine to use on nursing or pregnant mothers of kittens or puppies because advantage is not excreted through milk or placenta and then you can treat kittens/puppies at the appropriate age listed above.
Just thought I would share that info since I contacted the company directly and don't want anyone using it and having pups/kittens die of hypothermia.
