I really would doubt it. I put Advantage on my FeLV cats for years  never had 
any problem.

Hi,
I saw your post and felv.  My cat Cheshire recently passed, she developed 
leukemia, she had a lump on her neck.  She was anemic and wasn't gettign enough 
Oxygen in her system.   I got so many wonderful replies of condolences on 
here.  
One of the things I wondered was whether the revolution flea product I had 
applied on her 6 weeks before she passed somehow weakened her immune system or 
made her sick.  I rarely applied flea product on her, since she only went out 
on 
the deck.  She had had revolution treatments a couple of years ago when she had 
fleas but was fine then except for her asthma,  My other non-felv cat goes 
out.  
Anyway, it was jsut one of the things I've wrestled with.

Claudia,
 
I'm so sorry about Chesire's passing - I too wonder about Revolution. I always 
hear it's one of the lesser toxic products, but with these guys, I suppose we 
question everything.

If you see something under the chin, it could be chin acne, often mistaken
for flea dirt.  Comes mostly from using porous feeding dishes...try using
only ceramic, stainless steel...There are many non-poisonous alternatives
against fleasthe cedar one is good.  We use nematodes to spray around
the house and with so many cats, have no flea problems.

I use advantage. FeLV cats are very prone to Hemobartonella, which will
cause severe anemia  comes from fleas. ALL my cats get Advantage every
month  I have never had a problem. Fleas also cause tape worms which will
deprive the cat of nutrients.

Hi all...I suspect Spanky may have fleas. I found some flea dirt looking
dust and a lump under his chin and also have been seeing little red bugs
around but no fleas when I comb him. Some were flying so I thought, they
couldn't be fleas.  I also have a dog and it has been unseasonably warm here
in WI this week.   

Please let me know how you treat an felv kitty with a weak immune system for
fleas.  I am terrified at the prospect of having to spray my home and treat
him.  He used to get one of the topicals years ago but vet didn't think that
would be good for him now.  We have a vet appt tomorrow for ltci injection
and bloodwork.   I am taking some of the sample bugs I collected for
identification.  

Thanks for your help, Stacy and Spanky
