What is flea dirt? This is a common question that pet owners ask. "Flea Dirt" is a term that veterinary professionals use so commonly that sometimes I almost forget that some people may be unfamiliar with the term.

Flea dirt is the bowel movement of fleas, which they excrete on your pet. Instead of the flea - you find the flea dirt right on the skin of your pet.

Do you know how to tell the difference between flea dirt and just plain old dirt? We have a good article on just that topic. Go to: What Is Flea Dirt on Cats?

It is important to recognize flea dirt when you see it because it is an indication that your pet has fleas. Not only can fleas be uncomfortable and make your cat miserable, they can also spread disease such as tapeworms.
