I have a 10 year old black cat. He has been losing hair on his sides and his legs. He is constantly grooming and scratching. We have seen the vet on numerous occasions and have done the following: ring worm treatment, steroid shots, behavioral pill, and female birth control pills. All to no avail. Can a cat be given benedryl, he weighs about 18 lbs. or is there another over the counter medicine I can give him to relieve his itching. I've just about run out of money for the vets since they haven't helped at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Yes, benadryl is used in cats. You have to talk to your vet about a dose. vetcare
