Is your dog constantly licking and scratching? If so, you're not alone. Many dogs lick and scratch as result of itching (also called pruritis). The itching may be minimal or extreme, and can even cause injury.
Fleas and ticks - the very words trigger disgust and cause pet parents to worry about their cat's comfort and health.
Fleas are extremely common on cats and cause physical discomfort as well as potentially transmitting diseases in some regions. Ticks are potentially more serious in that, while less frequently found on cats, they transmit diseases more commonly when they feed.
