Question by Matt: Can liquid flea treatment “burn” a cats ears?
I used some over the counter flea treatment on my 1 yr old cat a few weeks ago. It’s the liquid kind that goes between their shoulder blades. I noticed that at the base of each ear now, that there are bright red, bleeding sores. The woman at Petsmart and a vet office said that the over the counter stuff is too strong for cats and can cause “burns” on their ears. Has anyone else heard about this or experienced this before? For those that have heard about it, what should I use to prevent the “burns”?
Answer by curious
I have an aunt who used to work in a vet office, she said she seen a lot of animals come in who had the over the counter flea stuff on them that caused problems. It’s just too harsh on some animals or the owners aren’t buying the right kind for their animals size, etc. You shouldn’t of put it so close to the ears. See what kind your vet suggest & how often you should apply it to your cat.

One cat has been given the advantage flea treatment by the vet. The other cat has been given flea powder.
Not only can you, you should! Powders, collars and the like are a lousy and old-fashioned treatment. There are more effective methods available these days, Advantage is one of them. Frontline is another, it’s my fave.
Lose the powder!

We found a stray kitten about 3 weeks ago and the vet said it looked about 4 weeks. Today we finally got around to giving it its first examination and they gave us Revolution flea treatment since he has fleas already. Is this safe to use for kittens? I’m only asking because I just now read that it’s only safe for kittens at least 12 weeks and wanted to know if this was true.
The manufacturer says it’s not for use on kittens less that 8 weeks old, and at one time it was said not to be used on kittens less than 12 weeks old. The other topical flea medications are different than Revolution, and much safer for young kittens or cats that are in bad physical shape. I’d take the Revolution back, and get Advantage until he’s a bit older.
Revolution is systemic – if the kitten has a bad reaction to it, it cannot be washed off.
