Hi! Happy New Year! Thx for your answer re:my Persian but now I have a problem with my other cat--ONYX (a older domestic shorthair)! She constantly licks her stomach (which is quite large! LOL) and licks both hair and skin off! It is red and hurts her! Is there some topical salve I can apply that will not hurt her if she licks it off? I am afraid to try any human products for fear I might poison her! Thanks for all the help you give!
Your pet should be seen by a vet for this condition. Sometimes an allergy can cause this. Another possibility is anxiety. Chances are any otc meds you put on her will not stop the licking and she will just lick it off. vetcare
