    I need advice on how to treat fleas. My little one is ridden with loads of black droppings in his fur. Been treated 6 days ago with JOhnson Herbal Flea Drops but this did not work at all. What is the best way to bath him and what to use.

    My question is: what can I use in my house as I have seen flea larves crawling in the corners of my living room (easy to see ad I've got floor panels), also there are little brown spots of sth, not sure wgar that is. I need to make sure that whatever I use will not harm Heniu.

    Thank you in advance

    Get frontline spray from vets for cat,along with a good quality household spray.johnsons is useless so is sherleys:)
    kitten will also need worming,panacur paste is good and easy to use.

  3. is frontline combo suitable for 7 weeks old? i thought it was from 8 weeks only!

    Frontline spray is suitable for your kitten

    indorex is a good household flea spray - remember to do all your soft furnishings too and other static areas of fabric such as the bottom of the wardrobe or linen cupboard.

    hope that helps

    Thank you all.

    The vet given him prescription flea treatment today as well as recommended Acclaim spray for the house. I was also told to steam clean my bed and well as the pillows, which can be washed.

    Now I am getting down to work clearing those critters!
