My 17 month old cat was licking himself so badly he lost his hair and now he has sores that are healing with the help of steriods. All they could tell me was that he was having an allergic reaction to something he may have eaten. Well this cat does get into everything. He just like a 2yr old. How will I ever know what caused him to do this to himself?
You may never know and either will the vet. This could be an allery or a behavioral problem associated with anxiety. Vetcare
