My cat started to groom himself excessively (lick/chew)a few months ago which results in bald spots, and sometimes even denuded sore areas. Most affected areas are abdomen, lower chest, under legs. Have had him seen by a vet 3 times now. Special food had no effect, Cortisone injection x 2--each had a brief effect, Amoxicillin x 10 days completely resolved problem until 5 days after meds ran out. Vet would not represcribe antibiotic. He's now chewing spots on outside of legs. What do I do next? Change vets?
If your cat is still licking and your vet feels this is a behavioral problem then talk to your vet about anti-anxiety meds. vetcare
