Health Questions & Answers



We have an adopted female cat approximately 7 years old (we got her when she was maybe 2 years) she's always been very healthy. At first the home she came from, she was flea infested/starved. Our vet has done tests for any diseases/allergies, but the problem is she continues to lick, chew, until she has bloody spots, which have turned into scars. She does this always, day and night. We have given her steroids/sprays/predisone/Prozac/ you name it, it hasn't worked. do you know if I give her Benadryl spray would this help, but I need to heal her, she is so loving, and suffering.

Dear Dottie,

If the other things haven't worked well, I doubt if Benadryl spray would. There are a few other things that you could try. Sometimes if a cat has tapeworms they can itch a lot. If you haven't had a stool sample checked recently submit one for analysis to check for parasites. To address the current symptoms I would try DERMA-IONX orally and topically. I would also give PROBIOTICS and Omega 3,6,9 to aid the immune system, reduce inflammation, and aid healing. Give filtered water for drinking if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. Those chemicals are damaging to the good bacteria in the intestines.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
