Kittens losing Hair.

by Kris

My kittens are losing their hair but their not getting their adult hair yet. What could this be? It leaves these bald spots on their ears, above their eyes and under their necks.

Answer by Kate
well there could be several causes of this. Possibly they have a mite problem of skin allergy. However it is difficult to know for sure without a vet taking a look at the areas.

i have a page here about fur loss it has some more information about the possible causes

To be honest your best option is to take them to the vets for a proper diagnosis.

Hope they are better soon

best wishes Kate

i have just read your other submission. yes it could be ring worm too and if this is the case then they will need medication from the vets to kill them off. i have some information about cat worms here too
