Are there fleas on your cat? Or are you concerned there might be in the future? Fleas are the most common external parasite seen on cats. If your cat is scratching more than normal, has hair loss around his lower back/tail area, or has tiny black dots that look like pepper in his fur, they most likely have fleas.

I am at a loss for words at how pleased I am with the service I received. I am going to recommend this app to everyone I know thank you thank you from me and my fur baby Winchester.
Amazing service, and Dr. Strange was wonderful in her consultation.
