How Old Does A Kitten Have To Be For Flea Treatment?

Thank you for your question. I recommend using Advantage II (for cats) or Frontline Plus (for dogs). The minimum age is 6 weeks, however, the best time to treat is at least 3 months of age.

How often should my dog be given flea treatment?

Your dog will need to be treated every month unless he/she has been vaccinated against heartworms and canine influenza which can prevent fleas. If your pet does not have these diseases then they will only require a monthly application during this period of time if an infestation occurs. You still want to keep up with their medication on a monthly basis just in case there are no symptoms that would indicate that they have contracted those infections from exposure to fleas during the period between treatments. Ideally, it is recommended that weekly bathing with a good shampoo as well as removing any dead skin flakes from around their face area where the hair grows very fast makes them less prone to secondary problems such as ticks or mites which flourish under conditions of poor hygiene and exposure to allergens such as dust mites found in carpets etc.. This combined with monthly oral medications can make sure your furry friend remains healthy throughout life!
