Cat Health Tip: Hair loss — 2 Comments

  1. How true this is. Remember when i sent you pics of my cat when he was losing some hair on his tail and around his face area? I ended up taking him in to the vet and she told me the cause was from fleas. I had been treating him with Frontline and while she said it was working, that now i needed to treat my home. Once i did that, things turned back to normal. He still is experiencing itchy skin however, and i do not know how to treat that. Trying to figure out if this is residual effects from fleas or what?

    • The residual itchiness may be due to another allergy or even if there is one flea left (and they are damn hard to eliminate) a single bite from that flea can cause an allergy to the bite and itchiness. You are probably doing it but if not I’d flea comb him twice per day or more, all over, to check for fleas. It must be a 32 to the inch flea comb. If the fur is dense it should be done very gently and gradually over time to tease the fur out. Good luck and sorry I missed your comment earlier.
