Flea Behaviors and Dangers
Fleas feed on all sorts of warm-blooded hosts such as dogs, cats, rodents, and sometimes humans. Generally, only a nuisance to the host, fleas can create swollen, irritating nodules at the bite site. This can lead to flea allergy dermatitis. This can lead to hair loss and even anemia in extreme cases.
