What is FleaDerm?

Fleas are an extremely common parasite among dogs and cats. Some pets suffer very little from the bites of these creatures but a number of less fortunate pets develop an allergic reaction to flea saliva, leading to a severe skin reaction known as flea bite dermatitis. Fleas bite their host animal and suck the blood for nutrition, leaving saliva behind under the pet’s skin. Recent scientific studies have shown that flea saliva contains around 15 different allergens that can cause reactions in sensitive dogs and cats. The common problem of flea bite dermatitis affects both cats and dogs of all ages, genders and breeds. In pets with this condition, the flea bites themselves generally become red, swollen and severely itchy. This leads to chronic inflammation and scratching of the skin as well as ongoing discomfort for your pet.


Dogs and cats with flea bite dermatitis generally show signs of chronic biting, scratching and rubbing their skin, especially around the base of the tail. This may, in turn, lead to hair loss and thinning of the coat. The skin may appear red and inflamed. A flea allergy will also be noticeably seasonal and cause worse symptoms during summer and fall when fleas are most prolific. Cats may develop multiple small scabs all over their body, a condition known as miliary dermatitis. To get to the root cause of this condition it is important to rid your pet of fleas entirely. Many flea-control products available in pet-stores including flea collars, sprays and shampoos are very effective when used regularly. The flea population is not limited to your pet, for each flea that you see on your pet there are a hundred more in the environment. The greater part of the flea lifecycle takes place in your home and eggs, larvae and adult fleas will all be found in your carpets and anywhere else in your house that your pet might have access to. It is therefore crucial that you treat the house as well as your pet. Wash all bedding on a hot wash cycle and hang out in the sunshine to dry. Treat the house with a veterinary approved spray that will have a residual effect and kill off any nasty fleas that hatch from any eggs.


For treating your pet’s skin that has already suffered the ravages of flea bite dermatitis, topical hydrocortisone products are usually used for dermatitis, but these can cause adverse side-effects, especially when used regularly. Prolonged use of cortisone can actually delay wound healing.


Pet wounds and skin irriationsare often treated with antibiotics – taken internally or applied as a cream to the skin in order to prevent infection. They may also be treated with topical corticosteroid creams. While these can be effective in the short term, many holistic vets believe that they may also compromise your pet’s health by affecting immune functioning. Topical antibiotic, corticosteroid and antiseptic creams are also often licked off by pets and can contain substances that may not be good for them to ingest. Certain herbs and homeopathic ingredients are excellent for soothing pain and reducing irritation of minor skin injuries and skin allergies. Gentle promotion of natural healing, as well as prevention of infection (without antibiotics) has been practiced by herbalists for thousands of years and can be of great benefit to your pet. Herbal and homeopathic ingredients have no side effects, making them a safe alternative to prescription creams and ointments.


PetAlive FleaDerm contains a blend of natural ingredients in an herbal cream and will effectively treat, soothe and alleviate flea bite dermatitis in dogs and cats, without the side effects of prescription creams for this condition.


PetAlive FleaDerm contains the following 100% natural, herbal and homeopathic ingredients in an aqueous cream base: Matricaria recutita (German Chamomile), Galium aperine (Cleavers), Calendula officinalis (Marigold) Hamamelis virginianum (Witchhazel), Graphites (30C)



PetAlive FleaDerm comes in a topical cream form and is easily applied directly onto the affected areas.

After cleansing, apply to affected area three times daily. Cleansing with PetAlive Clenzor is recommended.

Caution: For external use only. Please consult your veterinarian should symptoms persist.

Note: It is also recommended that this product be used together with PetAlive Immunity & Liver Support. A strong immune system will help to ward off the flea allergy and is known to make pets less susceptible to infestation by fleas and other parasites.
