We asked in-house Itch vet, Dr. Zoe Costigan to give us the lowdown on why your cat or dog might still be scratching after applying your tailored dose of Itch Flea Treatment. Here's what she had to say:
“It’s fairly normal for there to be a period of hyperactivity amongst the fleas as the product takes effect after you have applied your spot-on flea treatment, and this can cause an increase in your pet itching. It should settle down after 24 hours. If after 24 hours your pet continues to scratch, there could be other things going on. Your pet could be flea-allergic, it could have a skin infection or a hormone imbalance, or other conditions which can lead to itchiness.”
