I recently saved a kitten. Not sure how old he is but he has really bad fleas. I gave him part of a tube of flea medicine for 8 week olds. Will he be okay if he is younger than that?

Hi, well.done you for saving the little mite.

If his fleas are that bad and he is so young, I would get advice from a Vet. Fleas can kill young animals from the blood loss.

Ideally I would get your flea medication from the Vet also, shop bought products don’t always do the job and the kitten does need to get rid of all the fleas. He probably has internal parasites too which will also be detrimental to his health in a big way. 

Good luck!!
