My mother's cat licks herself until she creates bald spots, particularly on her stomach. Her vet's only suggestion was hormones. This made the cat sleepy and hungry all of the time. She has gained a considerable amount of weight and has continued the excessive grooming. She is strictly an indoor cat about 6 years old. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.
I usually treat this with an injection of depo-medrol. Talk to your vet about it. This is usually a behavioal problem or an allergy. Good luck, vetcare
