Q. Hello I have a 7 month old ferret who has flees or possibly mites. I was wondering if cat advantage would be safe for her. Thank you.

A. Yes it can be used but you need to check the appropriate dosage (you can use only the advantage multi for cats size 0.4mls!). Advantage is registered as effective against fleas and heart worm in ferrets even though it may be partially effective against mites. Ivermectin is more indicated for mites (your veterinarian can prescribed appropriate dosage and treatment).
