Okay so my cat doesn't seem to have fleas but has black specks all over her white fur. She has itched her back to the point she is bleeding. No change in type of food she eats, no change in litter, and no change in the flea medicine we use. Any idea what is wrong?

If it looks like flea dirt, it probably IS flea dirt, even if you can't see any fleas! Perhaps you need a better type of medicine. Are you using something like "Revolution"?

I don't know what to say the only time I see this on Shorty it turns out to be flea dirt, try the pet syptom checker even if that works I would still take her to the vet!
