    Skin Vs Food Allergy

    My cat Haze and I have been slowly going through the food and skin allergy issue for the last few years. Long story short, we initially thought he had a food allergy but after going to Z/D food, the itching and hair loss continued. It seems seasonal - worse at times and not so bad at other...

    Neck Lump 6 Month Old Cat

    So the ultrasound is somewhat mysterious per the vet. The mass is oblong shaped rather than circular. Due to the quickness of development, the vet suggested anti-inflammatories and an antibiotic first to see if the mass comes down in size which would mean it’s related to an infection (possibly...

    I actually did ask about CBD oil because read it’s great for inflammation and URIs. My vet was not on board as it has not had enough studies done with cats - dosing was his biggest concern. I actually bought some and gave him one dose and he coincidentally started scratching really bad that...

    Cat Allergies And Atopic

    Science Diet Z/D is the prescription food advised by his vet. It’s hydrolized for skin/food allergies. It’s breaks down proteins so much that the body can’t recognize them to have an allergic reaction. I think a derm appt might be next. I’d like to see what he is allergic to. Might help me at...

    Cat Allergies And Atopic

    Thank you for your reply! I think I just worry that I’ll annoy my vet with repeated questions or offend him if it sounds like I’m questioning him. Haze is strictly indoors. We have no plants inside - he has had a run in with Lilies! So we have no plants . I’ve tried to determine what the...

    Cat Skin Allergy Reaction To Clotrimazole

    Thank you for your response. My vet said he felt more comfortable starting with the antifungal topical until the culture came back. He said he didn’t want to give an oral antifungal until culture confirmed ringworm if I remember correctly it was due to the oral having a bit more side effects...
