    Use ONE drop of revolution puppy/kitten flea treatment.

    I would use Adams Kitten Spray for fleas on a cotton ball and wipe a teeny tiny amount on them, letting it completely dry before putting them back together..
    Also Revolution (Rx) and Advantage Multi(Rx) are both safe in moderation.
    Dawn dish liquid bath will also help with fleas...

    This is the stuff!! I had a new little guy arrive a week ago covered in fleas. one tiny drop of Revolution for kittens and not a flea in sight. I treated everyone just in case we had escapees. It really worked for us.

    I've used ferret tick and flea shampoo with success as well.
    We just so happen to have a ferret.
