Hello my name is Nicole and my cats names are Lola and Boots but Boots is the one with the problem. He is always licking and cleaning himself but the problem is he licks himself on his neck until the hair is gone and there is a little pink spot and it just get bigger the more he licks it until I stop him. I put the med the vet gave me and cover it it goes away and the hair comes back but in a month or two he does it again and it comes back it started a year ago. I've been to the vet 3 times for this but its over $150 each time I go I don't no what to do I changed his food and it stopped for a while and he's doing it again the only way I can stop him is covering his neck or putting a cone on him but he hates that what can I do I need help please.

Dear Nicole,

Could you provide me with a little more information?  What had you been feeding your cat, food and treats?   What did you switch to?  Has your cat had fleas?  Do you use a flea product?  Does your cat go outside?

Best regards,

Dr. Char
