What is flea allergy dermatitis?
Flea allergy dermatitis is a condition that affects both cats and dogs. Severe, prolonged itching in both cats and dogs, and an often-significant increase in grooming in cats are noticeable signs of the condition. Many pet owners are shocked to find out that flea allergy dermatitis can result from even very minimal and intermittent exposure to fleas – these pets are that sensitive and each flea may bite 50 times per day. And because fleas can live year-round in many environments, cases of flea allergy dermatitis can be seen at any time of the year.
