Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

With these little ones being so young, we will be limited in what we can safely treat them with. That said, you can safely use the spray version (not spot on) of Frontline. Frontline spray (Example) can be used as early as a few days of age, so this would be an option here. Most vets carry it but as you can see it can be purchased online. Otherwise, in the meantime, we'd want to flea comb the kittens to remove fleas and then dunk those fleas into dish soap to kill them.

I hope this information is helpful.

If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!

All the best,

Dr. B.
