"Sentinel" and other flea medications can be given to puppies at least 4 weeks old and weighing at least 2 pounds...hope that helps-I know treating fleas can be a vicious cycle!

I would talk to your vet. I believe that Advantage can be used on them, since they allow Advantage to be used on day old kittens. Otherwise, I would just use mild soap(like baby shampoo or ivory) and water.
