cat missing fur - possible infection?

by Wanda
(Rowley, MA)

my dog has been sniffing my cat's butt constantly. I finally looked to see what he was so interested in. She is missing fur around her anus and looks like a small red dot and there's some puss spots also. She acts perfectly normal. Have you heard of anything like this?

Answer by Kate
well it sounds to me like she may have a parasite problem. This is a common area for these things to occur and fur loss and blood spots are common.

You will need to take her to the vet to have a proper diagnosis of what exactly is causing this so that the correct treatment can be prescribed.

i have a web page about cat fur loss etc which you may find of further interest here

best wishes Kate
