How to spot flea and tick issues

Even though cats can’t talk, there are a number of ways you can tell there’s a problem.


Some scratching is normal for cats, but If your cat is scratching regularly, it could be due to an allergic reaction to flea saliva. In addition to causing serious discomfort, fleas can also infect your cat with tapeworms, Bartonella (also known as cat scratch fever or Carrión’s disease), and other flea-borne illnesses that can be serious. A Dutch vet can create a custom treatment plan for your cat to help you get rid of the fleas, prevent future problems, and relieve the itching.

Red bumps or scabs

If your cat’s allergic to flea bites, you may find red bumps or scabs on their body. And because fleas and ticks both suck blood, your cat may get scabs even if they aren’t allergic to the bites. Fleas and ticks can both cause feline infectious anemia, which can be deadly, so prevention and treatment are extremely important. Our virtual vet team is here to help with quick access to advice and prescriptions whenever you need it.

Hair loss

In cases of a severe flea allergy, your cat may have small or large bald patches, typically due to overgrooming the area. This is especially common around the low back or tail. The licensed veterinarians at Dutch can prescribe flea treatments to eliminate your cat’s uninvited guests as well as medications to help soothe their irritated skin for long-term relief.

Tiny black specks or visible fleas

If you run your fingers or a flea comb through your cat’s fur, you may see fleas themselves or tiny black specks (aka flea dirt), which is actually flea excrement. Fleas tend to prefer the back part of pets, especially by the tail, so start looking in this area. If you find evidence of fleas on your cat, one of our online vets can prescribe a monthly medication to kill off the critters and prevent future infestations — without you having to leave home.

Visible tick

Have an outdoor cat? Check them for ticks regularly by running your fingers through their fur and feeling for small round bumps. Ticks can carry diseases which can cause ongoing health issues for your cat. Our licensed veterinarians are available online to guide you on what to do if you find a tick on your cat as well as prescribe medication to prevent fleas and ticks in the future.

    Dutch has been a godsend

    “Most vet visits with cats a traumatizing so I only take mine when I absolutely have to. However they still need routine care, like flea and tick and wormer. Dutch is quick, convenient, and the vets are so nice. Ten minutes on a zoom call, and my cat wasn’t left traumatized for flea and tick meds.”

    Easy service!

    “Did not have to stress my 2 cats by taking them physically to a vet, so they were relaxed because they were at home. The issue with the felines was resolved with the correct meds, and we were even able to do a fecal test through a 3rd party! Easy! Have recommended to friends already.”

    Grateful to find Dutch.

    “I was grateful to find Dutch for my cat when my vet didn’t have any appointments available. The process was easy, I had a same day appointment with a vet, and received my cat’s medicine within a few days. Thanks!”

Frequently asked questions

What is a visit with Dutch like?

When booking a video call with a vet, you'll be asked a few questions about your pet’s health issue. Depending on the issue, you may also be asked to fill out a longer questionnaire about their symptoms and share photographs of them so our veterinarians can better understand what’s going on. You’ll then pick an appointment time that works best for you.

During your video call, one of our licensed veterinarians will talk to you about the symptoms your pet is experiencing, ask you questions, review your pet’s medical history if you’ve provided it, and answer any questions you have. The vet will ask to see your pet and their environment. And they may ask you to perform some simple checks on them if needed.

After your video call, the vet will send you a message with a custom treatment plan to help your pet feel better, including a link to buy any recommended prescription or over-the-counter medications. Place your order and we’ll ship it free.
