Fleas have found their way onto my cats. My smallest kitten has the sharpest, most painful, deadly claws. She's scratching herself because of the fleas and causing serious damage. She has cuts, blood, and scabs all over her. So I can't give her a flea bath. Hubby's afraid of putting medicated drops (like frontline or advantage) on her cause the poison might get into her blood w/ all those open cuts. So what can we do? We don't think it's fair to declaw her (nor can we afford it) when the only reason for her serious scratching is the fleas. We just need a safe flea treatment. What can we use that won't hurt her in the process? I was thinking of using that liquid bandage stuff then the drops. Good idea? Suggestions?Answer Question
