    Not a lot of info to go on. Why does your mom feel it's related to fleas? External parasites can cause some serious problems. If you have an infestation going on then it needs to be treated ASAP. There are a number of useful posts on this site related to dealing with them. A quick search should give you all the info you need to tackle the problem.

    Sorry for your losses.
