Health Questions & Answers



I have a cat who is licking and biting the fur off her back on both sides of her spine. She acts as if the area is sensitive and it feels very warm occasionally. They have given her a steroid injection which did not seem to help at all. I was told that she had a twisted muscle near her spine and was doing this for relief from the pain. Help!

Dear Evelyn,

I would start with PROMAXOL. It helps to decrease pain, inflammation, and stiffness and stimulate healing. Initially I would give a half dose with breakfast and supper. After improvement is seen you can decrease to a whole dose once daily. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving some nutritional supplements to accompany the homeopathic. I would use probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. These help improve the general well being.

I would also suggest an evaluation by a veterinary chiropractor. If a correction is needed, that can help with better function and a reduction in discomfort. Acupuncture is also worth checking into if you don't get total resolution after the chiropractic adjustment.

Please let us know how your cat responds. We can offer plan B if necessary.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
