Fleas are a very common cause of pruritis (itching) in dogs and cats. The fleas may be difficult to find because some animals can be allergic therefore a small number of fleas will cause them to itch or when chewing they ingest the flea.
Using flea products on your pet may not take all the itch away. Your pet may have an allergic reaction to fleas which can require additional medications. (link to flea allergy info)
There are many over the counter products but they are usually ineffective and can be dangerous to humans and animals, especially cats; therefore; it is recommended to buy your flea medications from your veterinarian.
