It's cats plural and I'm quite sure it's related to fleas

Customer Question

hi .. it's cats plural and I'm quite sure it's related to fleas :-( but I could use some advice
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: there are 4 of them ... age ranges from juvenile (unkown, it is a rescue cat) to 18+
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?
Customer: well I was hoping to find out about helping them with associated skin problems while we work to tackle the flea problem

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What flea products are you currently using?

What skin signs are you seeing on each (ie just itchy, lesions, pimples/pustules, etc)?

Where on the skin are you seeing these signs?

Any diet change in the 2 months before this started?
