My cat has been scratching above her eye and it is red.

Customer Question

My cat has been scratching above her eye and it is red. Also, there are a few small black specs on her blanket. I had changed her type of litter to one with fragrance?
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: her name is ***** ***** she is 11 years old. Does she have fleas?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Auggie?
Customer: She is an indoor cat.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

1) Can you share a picture of the area that she's been scratching?
2) Is she on a flea prevention at this time? If so, what? When was it last applied?
3) Are the black specs still on her bedding at this current time?
