Sam is a 7 year old neutered male short hair domestic. He has been overgrooming. We changed his diet to a grain free wet food - and his late evening dry food snack. He has licked off his hair on this stomach and left hind quarter. For the past 30 days we have added Derma-IonX to his evening meal. His fur looks great and feels silky. How do we stop the over grooming?

Dear Gene,

Besides DERMA-IONX I also recommend PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9. What kind of water do you give?

Have you had a stool sample checked recently? Sometimes parasites can cause a cat to groom excessively. Do you think there is an anxiety issue? Are there other cats in the neighborhood or other competition in the household (human or pet)?

Best regards,

Dr. Char
