If your pet has extensive skin damage, and is constantly biting, licking and scratching, your veterinarian may have diagnosed the condition as flea allergy dermatitis.
Dr. Lovern discovers the source of a cat's flea infestation to be a favorite sleeping spot.
Fleas may be small (1 to 2mm long) but they can cause big problems for your dog, cat and family members. Their bites are an annoyance and can be very itchy, causing your pet to scratch—especially if it’s allergic to flea saliva. Too much scratching can lead to skin infections, for one thing, not to mention that a flea can also spread disease. That’s why it’s important that your pet is given a preventive medication regularly. Year-round protection is optimal.
