My cat keeps loosing fur

by Paula

My cat who is now 8 years old keeps going bald. He seems to groom himself and bites the areas (hind legs, feet, legs and tummy. This happens every 2 months...he goes bald then it grows back, then it goes bald again. This has been going on now for over a year. I did take him to the vets but she said not to worry.

The areas dont look red or scabby, just dry. I treat him with frontline regularly so it cannot be fleas.

Your help is very much appreciated !

I don't know if you have read my page about skin problems in cats but it has lots of info about skin conditions and also some treatments available. Here is the page just in case you have not seen it.

best wishes Kate
