need help shedding a cat out

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My cat has some type of allergies and the meds she is on don't help. I will be taking her back to the dermatologist vet soon as I can but meanwhile -----! She is shedding up a storm.

I brush her and comb her but she still keeps on! She also chews her hair due to her itching and gets a stomach full of hair.

Does the furminator work? What else would you all recommend to help shed her out?

Is your vet watching her tummy so that she does not develop any nasty furballs or stomach probs?

And yes, furmatator seems to have worked for many I know. If I knew the meds, I would tell which are better but then everyone has different opinons and just becaue I think one is best does not mean it is or another vet might have another response and be totally correct. It all depends often on the cat and the kind of allergy too!

Good luck!!!

She has been to a dermatologist Vet who put her on a medicine called Atopica. It USED to work but suddenly now it does not.

She licks and chews so much she does get hairballs and I am forever cleaning up messes.

I always thought the furmiator was just a glorified flea comb so is it better?

I have that wire brush they advertied on TV, called the ZoomGroom and it helps but I can sit with her from sunup till sundown and keep brushing her and she never stops shedding!

I want to take her for testing but right now her "sister" is dying of CRF and each time I think it is time she perks up and I find I am wrong and she needs more supplies.

I have a furminator for my dog (who has a THICK coat) and one for the cat. It gets the undercoat, not the top coat. In my opinion, I will never have another animal brush and it is TOTALLY worth the money!!! I literally filled a shoebox with dog hair the first time I used it.

The furminator is definitely not the same as a flea comb. Only one of my kitties sheds much and the furminator cut that down by about 90%. I use it on all of them and have very little cat hair flying around the house.
