Atopic dermatitis (atopy) is a skin problem caused by an allergy to something in the environment (such as pollen, moulds, grass or dust mite).
A cat’s claws and teeth are covered in bacteria, if they bite or scratch each other it’s very likely that an infection will develop.
Fleas are tiny insects that live on dogs, cats and in your home. They are much more common in the summer months (April - September).
