It's not always fleas that will cause your pet to scratch. Just like people, your pet can have allergies. Skin allergies is a very common issue among pets. Many owners will mistake their pets constant itching with having fleas and that's not always the case. 

Allergies fall into four categories:
  • Those caused by fleas and other biting insects 
  • Those caused by inhaled allergens such as dust mites, grasses, molds, and tree and weed pollens 
  • Those caused by foods and drugs 
  • Those caused by irritants that have direct contact with the skin



Common signs of allergies:
  • Itchy, red, moist or scabbed skin
  • Increased scratching
  • Itchy, runny eyes
  • Itchy back or base of tail (most commonly related to flea allergy)
  • Itchy ears and ear infections
  • Sneezing
  • Paw chewing/swollen paws Constant licking
