Scabs on cats. Causes — 2 Comments

  1. My adult female cat has a big patch of black scabby stuff on her back near her left hind leg. Vet said it is there because she had a problem but doesn’t have it any longer. Gave her lyzine ointment. After months it mostly went away. It is back again. (Don’t trust the vet. Told me another cat had the sniffles and it was lung cancer.) I’ve looked online and don’t a picture of what it really looks like. No oozing, no red specks, no bumps. Doesn’t look like the pictures of milinary dermitis. Just big black crusty scab. Not crazy itchy. Have 2 other cats without the problem. All on flea control. Because of convic-19 vets have only been seeing emergencies in Ky.

    • Not sure. It is circular in shape. This points to ringworm which is not always itchy. Although ringworm forms a red scab. Is you cat otherwise healthy? Dermatitis? Allergy? Has ringworm been an issue before? Probably not as you would have said.
