Fleas in a small kitten are quite common, because they easily pass to him from the mother or from other animals. It is not difficult to remove these unwanted "tenants" from a small pet if you follow certain recommendations.
Get a special flea shampoo from your veterinarian and follow the instructions on it to wash your kitten. When purchasing, be sure to check if this kitten shampoo can be used or if it is only designed to treat adult cats. If there is no shampoo for little fluffs on sale, in no case buy or try to remove fleas from a kitten with a product for adult animals - a high content of toxic agents in it can lead to severe poisoning of the kitten. When washing, do not apply a lot of shampoo to the coat - this will not lead to an increase in its effectiveness, but it will be more difficult to completely wash it off. After shampooing, rinse your little pet's coat thoroughly several times with warm running water.
You can also remove fleas from a kitten with the help of special drops that are applied to the withers of the animal. They also need to be purchased only from a veterinary pharmacy. The number of drops that you will need to drip into the kitten, agree with the veterinarian or with the seller of the pharmacy - it is calculated according to the age of the animal. Apply the required number of drops exactly to the withers so that the kitten does not have the opportunity to lick them off. In the event that your pet lives with a mother-cat, give up this method of removing fleas from him - while licking his child, an adult cat will lick drops, which can cause her poisoning.
In the event that the kitten lives with its mother or with its brothers and sisters, then it is necessary to remove fleas from all animals at the same time. If your pet lives in a house alone, but goes outside, then after eliminating the parasites using one of the methods described earlier, buy it at a veterinary pharmacy and put on a special anti-flea collar, the active substances of which will reliably protect your little pet from re-infection for several months fleas.
