My cat has been licking her belly causing her to loose hair. The last time this happened, she had a flea infestation. I was able to see the fleas then and now I don't see any. She's not scratching or twitching like she did before, either. The hair on her back has a lot of dandruff. I had washed her with my shampoo so I'm wondering if she is having a reaction to that or if it could be a flea infestation and I can't see them. I really don't want to treat her with any medication if I can help it. Do you know of any natural products that can be used for fleas that are less harmful?
First, a diagnosis needs to be made. We do not know why she is itching/licking. If she does not have fleas then she does not necessarily need flea medication. Excessive grooming can be caused by anxiety, stress, allergies primary skin disorders etc.. I recommend that you have her checked by the vet for proper treatment. Vetcare
