    It was profender that the vet gave me. They aren't tiny tiny kittens they are about 5 lbs and I'd say 4 months? I do treat them with flea medication every month. I use advantage II. They are still gaining weight and growing.

    In that case you may need to redose. It is possible that they ingested a flea before it died from the advantage. I would definitely tell your vet. Parasites can be so annoying to say the least.
