My 12-year old cat recently started loosing her hair around the top of her backside and hind legs. My local vet emptined her annual glands (which were'nt very full) at an attempt to eliminiate the problem. She doesn't have any fleas.
What could be causing this? There hasn't been any cnahge in her diet.
Is she licking herself or over grooming herself in that area?? If so, then it could be relaed to an allergy or anxiety. It is also possible that she has a metabolic disease such as an overactive thyroid or diabetes. ectoparasites can also cause this. vetcare
