My cat has licked himself just above where his tail meets his body to the point that his outer coat is gone and the lower layers of fur are showing. I've checked him, especially in this area, for fleas but can find none. Is there something that I can apply to his skin that will lessen the itchiness (or whatever it is) that will not be harmful to him when he licks?
Your pet should be seen by a vet for excessive licking. There may be a problem that you do not see or know about. vetcare
