My cat has been diagnosed with allergies. He has in the past had bunches form on the pad of his front foot, near his mouth and has always pulled his hair out. We were given prednizone. He hasn't had the bunches lately but does keep pulling his hair out. I then give him prednizone, but I feel long term the prednizone will have other effects. Is there any other medication that I can get for him? He is also very thin. His brother is very big with no allergies. The cat with allergies is very active and playful, just looks undernourished and sometimes bald in spots. Any suggestions you could give me would be appreciated. Thank you.
