When we brought our most recent kitten home, he was totally infested with fleas. We'd never had a flea problem with any of our cats, we weren't sure what to do for a cat that was only about 6 weeks old, so we went to the pet store and found Hartz (among several other similar brands) and they all said not to use on kittens under 12 weeks. So we didn't buy them.

One of my co-workers volunteers at an emergency animal hospital, and even though she's not a vet, I figured I'd pick her brain and ask her what the dangers would be of using it on a kitten younger than 12 weeks, and she freaked out when I asked her! She told me not only not to use it on a kitten under 12 weeks, but not to ever use those on any cat of any age. She said it's unbelievable how often they get cats in the emergency room, in shock, after having used those products, and sometimes, unfortunately, they can't save them.

Chuckles is now about 3 months, and still has a flea or two, but it's way under control (thanks to the motherly-grooming skills of my other cat, Raven). We're probably gonna get some Advantage or Frontline within the next week.

I warn everyone

Anytime I see someone in the isle at Walmart getting ready to buy those OTC flea products I try to warn them of the dangers. Some listen, some don't.

Ihad the same thing happen with Frontline. Spent over $200 on my cat because of a reaction. I now use fennel seed oil on all my cats. Have for almost 7 years. Have had no problem with fleas or health problems with my babies. Thing is fennel seed oil can be purchased at most health food stores for about $10.00 for 4oz bottle. I put a couple of drops on each cat once a week during flea season. The bottle I am using now I bought last year. It is almost empty. I have 7 cats.

She had an allergic reaction to it. Not only was she having trouble breathing but where it touched her skin she had hugh red blisters. This all happen within about 4 hours of using it.
