My Bengal cat is pulling out her fur and scratches her ears

Customer Question

my Bengal cat is pulling out her fur and scratches her ears a lot. I took her to my vet and she said shes allergic to fleas so we are applying advantage flea control and bombed the house for fleas but she still is scratching herself a lot.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. How old is cat?
Customer: she is 4 and my vet recommended advantage flea control
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about cat?
Customer: Im feeding her fancy feast along with her dry cat food thinking it would add moisture to her coat
