by jarrod

I have owned my cat for a year now and recently she is constantly licking herself all over and scratching im pretty sure its not fleas i gave her advantage flea treatment and she is still scratching and licking i have found a couple scabs fom this under her fur im at wits end im going to take her to a vet this week of course its a long weekend so im just looking for infomation right now mabye a home remedy of sorts

Answer by Kate
Sounds like she has been bitten by something and is having a reaction to the bite. I must admit i don't know of any home remedy for this, the vet need to give a anti histamine injection to relive the itching.

Cold water may helpt to relive the itching but you can't really put any sort of cream on it as the cat will lick it off.

licking and scratching solution

Your cat is either eating bad food or is alergic to a food ingredient.

Make sure you are feeding kitty top quality food. There are so very many pet food recalls and ill kitties as a result. That's a common poison fod reaction.

If you think it's allergies, try feeding all fish or all chicken based food. My darling cat is allergic to fish. Once i stopped feeding him anything with fish or fish oil, he was fine.

He was licking some parts when his back's out of alignment. He sees a kitty chiropractor. That's a good idea now and then for all pets.

Hope and pray this helps!
