Your Cats Skin

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

CAT SCRATCHINGYour cats skin is an indication of his general health. If there is a skin problem, your cat may respond by scratching, licking or chewing. A wide range of causes—from external parasites and allergies to seasonal changes and stress, or a combination of these—may be affecting your cat’s skin and should be investigated.  Some causes could be:

  • Ringworm
  • Fleas
  • External Parasites
  • Allergies to grooming products.
  • Seasonal changes, the winter could dry a cats skin out.
  • Environmental factors like contact with certain chemicals or fabrics can cause skin irritation.
  • Bacterial or yeast infections
  • Tumors

This is why it’s important to see your vet who will properly diagnose the problem.

Remember, your pets count.
