Dear Mindy,

I would use Defendex shampoo to soothe his skin and make him smell differently so the fleas will not be so attracted to him. If you need to give a product to kill fleas you could consider Frontline spray. I use that product for my outdoor cat because I can control the amount I am giving. I give less than the suggested amount and can give the rest of the dose later in the month if necessary. If the skin is already itchy you can also give our homeopathic product called Derma-IonX orally; it can be added to food or water. It helps to reduce the allergy symptoms.

Please let us know how you progress.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
