Flea-Bite Hypersensitivity and Flea Control

• Flea control is important for dogs and cats
• No cure exists for flea-bite hypersensitivity
• Flea-allergic pets often become more sensitive to flea bites as they age
• Controlling exposure to fleas is currently the only means of controlling signs; “allergy shots” (known as “hyposensitization”) for flea-bite hypersensitivity are not effective
