Fleas are parasites that feed on humans and other warm blooded animals. The most common species is the cat flea, which often feasts on cats, dogs and humans. Fleas are the most common parasite of the rare bubonic plague. They also transmit the bacterial disease to humans through infected rodents. Their saliva can cause serious flea allergy dermatitis in pets and their debris has been reported to cause similar allergic reactions in humans. Fleas can also transfer tapeworms and cause anemia in pets, which is why active flea management is an important component of pet care. Flea bites commonly cause painful, itchy red bumps.
