Can I advantage my barn kitty that is pregnant? I have her in the heated workshop and I worry about bringing any fleas into the house. I live in the frozen north, so it might not be an issue. Any thoughts? Thank you. SC

Frontline, Advantage and Advantix all have warning labels regarding their use in pregnant cats. I wouldn't use any of them until at least 8 weeks after the kittens are born. If you do use them after the kittens are born, make certain the fur where the product was applied is completely dry. They aren't are safe for kittens under 8 weeks of age.

I used Frontline on Keller before I knew she was pregnant. Should I be worried?

I read something on a website (maybe not to be trusted at all, but I didn't know Coral was pregnant and I used Advantage at about 2 weeks in), that you can use advantage on a pregnant cat up to about 2 weeks before delivery. It didn't sound right to me, but hey, it made me feel less bad It's probably best to look on the products website. They should have all the info you may need.

Thanks for all the info. I won't advantage until it is totally safe after the babies are born. I have no idea how soon she will have them. I have had cats all my life, but no kittens except once. So long ago. It breaks my heart that she is pregnant. She will be spayed asap after they are born. She was a wild barn cat, but she sure has tamed down in just the couple of days she has been here. I have opened her cage and she likes to go and lay in the sun and watch the birds out the window. I am heating her a nice fleece throw in the dryer right now. I wish someone would heat me a fleece throw.....

Well, from my readings on the subject (I have a probably-preggers stray in residence at the moment), cats are generally more affectionate went pregnant, so now might be a good time to increase the bond between the two of you.
