He has been doing this to himself since we got him as a kitten. He will be 10yrs old in March. (wow!)
He's seen numerous vets over the years and tried numerous treatments for the condition. Nothing has helped. It goes away for a little while but comes back after a few months.
We've tried everything from cortizone shots to antibiotics to antidepressants. I put him on Wellness salmon formula and that seemed to help for a while. However my other cat Putsy (13yrs old) now has no teeth and requires canned food. She will not eat high quality canned like Merrick or Wellness, she only likes fancy feast. And one paticular flavor and style. Samie takes bites of that in the morning too. I'm wondering if hes allergic to something in it?
But if anyone has any ideas why hes doing it, or if you have some new ideas how I could help him, that would be great. I'm putting prescription cortizone on the skin now but it isnt helping.
well i know if you put some MTG (mane tail Groom sold at Tractor supply plus. it will make the hair grow back and kill any fungal infection and such. i use it for my horses. and i have used it on some rescues that blew coat works miricals!!
