• My cat has one small scab on the side of her neck and one on the back of her neck, could that mean she might fleas? No other part of her body has anything and her ears are clean, but I’m not sure what the scab could be from, it’s been there for about 1 week and hasn’t gotten any smaller

    HI Julia,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. Scabs like you are describing that are not healing are concerning. There can be many different causes for this including fleas, allergies, infection, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the scabs and the treatment she needs after they have examined her.
