Hi everyone! im new here. I have a 2 year old tabby named pixie. She’s had this problem on and off for her whole life, but it’s never been this bad before! here’s what happens: She licks and will then start biting at areas on her body quickly, like somethings bitten her. At first it was just the base of her tail, and after defleeing her and if not working, I took her to the vet. The vet said there were no parasites on her skin at all and no flaky skin, but her anal glands were full so she squeezed them and said it should get better. in the week I noticed she was chewing at other parts. Her flank, and a higher area on her tail. Also noticed she’s been scratching at her ears more. I took her back to the vet and she said it could be allergies so have her a steroid shot and said it it works it’s allergies and if it doesn’t it’s behavioral. I’m stopping wheat food and moving onto the expensive stuff to see is that makes a difference. has anyone else had this problem before? she seems so uncomfortable and I’ve even gone as far as to shampoo her with cat shampoo in case she maybe walked through something and got in on her skin and made her itchy. It sure looks like an allergy and not like obsessive licking because she turns to itch like somethings stung her/bit her but vet used UV lamp and saw no evidence of parasites. im just so upset for her! She’s my first cat and my quarantine buddy. What can I do to make her more comfortable? should also mention she’s very unhappy for me to inspect those areas. Very friendly cat most of the time but gets very upset when I try to move her fur aside to look at the bald spots.
