Health Questions & Answers



Dr., An "adopted" feral cat living under my home appears to have mange. I've observed it's very matted and wild looking fur for some time. While I can't get closer than 4-5' to it, I';D like to treat this condition, perhaps through the daily food I provide. 3 other feral cats nearby seem very healthy. I hope to tn release all of them soon. Is it mange? Any remedies? John PS: "My" live in cat is very healthy, and they all get along.

Dear John,

Lack of hair can be a sign of mange. Matted hair can be a sign of a cat not feeling well enough to groom properly. Ask your veterinarian if you can get some wormer. Then after that I would give DERMA-IONX, PROBIOTICS, and OMEGA 3,6,9. You can add these to the food. It will help to improve the skin, coat, and immune system.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
