Flea saliva can cause serious allergies, dermatitis, anemia, itching, and infection, despite the fact that the bite itself is small. Additionally, infections, abscesses, paralysis, and even death can result from tick bites.
In addition to causing allergic reactions, fleas and ticks can also cause cats to get a number of illnesses, such as:
