Today’s Daily Post is short You may want to read more on this topic in: How Veterinary Dermatology Cases Are Worked Up.
Today I just want to get the point across that fleas are not the only thing that makes dogs and cats scratch.
We often hear the comment, “His flea control is not working.”
“Oh! And what are you basing that on?”
“He scratches all the time.”
“Are you seeing fleas on him?”
“Are you seeing fleas in the house or the yard?”
“When people are itchy, are fleas the only thing that can cause that?”
“Likewise, my 750-page veterinary dermatology textbook has 500 pages devoted to things that cause itchiness, and only three pages are devoted to fleas.”
See you tomorrow, Dr. Randolph
