I could be wrong.... but I THINK advantage is ok, but only the kitten kind. I don't know why, but i remember reading somewhere that the dog kind is bad???
I really hope you get someone who knows who they are talking about to post here before you go out and get something.
GoodLuck!

Quote From another Thread I found by Susami... I hope this helps!!
It's Ultra Care Flea and Tick Spray for Small Animals. The brand is 8in1. I think you should be able to find it at most major petstores .

Like Dozed just mentioned, I used a spray by 8in1. My vet said it's perfectly safe and the fleas were gone in a couple days .

Advantage is safe to use...it's frontline that isn't. I have used advantage for kittens on my rabbits before and it has worked like a charm!

Too lazy to even think of a siggy
