Cat loosing fur

by Warren Smith

my himalayan seal point is 1 year old but she is losing her fur at a rapid rate in clumps we have treated her for fleas and she seems happy enough but what was a big bushy tail is now down to 30% of what it was

Hi well there must be either either an allergy to something involved here or perhaps another parasite. Stress can also be a cause of cats loosing fur.
the only way to be sure is to get a vet to take a look at her skin under a microscope, he may also recognize the symptoms if an allergy is the cause and be able to recommend treatment.

i do have a web page here about this sort of issue which you may find of further help here

best wishes and i hope you can find the cause soon as it must be very distressing for both you and your cat.
