My husband and I got an 8 week old kitten last night and the previous owner insisted she didnt have fleas. Well when we got her home, we discovered she did have fleas!! We gave her a flea bath and sprayed her with a cat spray also. We werent sure if we got all the fleas and then we saw one flea crawl up to her face so there might be more. I made her an appointment at the vet to have an advantage treatment done which is just a drop they put on her I guess. They told us to wait for this until Monday because we already shampooed her and she is so young. She wasnt too infested and I think I got most off right now, so should she be okay after one advantage treatment? She was in our house for about an hour before we discovered the fleas so should we look for something to spray in the house? Also the vet said to wash her with dawn dish soap to get any flea shampoo residue off as she is so young but I can't bring myself to give her another bath and we rinsed her pretty good I think, so it shouldnt hurt her right? Thanks!
