dry skin

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My 6 year old cat Annie has developed a dry strip on her back that runs from the base of her neck to her tail. Her coat(the dry area only)feels very coarse, almost matted. I had her shaved last summmer but since the hair has grown back it is starting to feel coarse again in that area. Any suggestions???

Well, the first thing you might want to try is a omega fatty acid suppliment. If after a month it does not help, get to the vet and have it looked at. It can indicate anything from an allergy to a thyroid problem.

Where would I find the omega fatty acid? Would it be something to put in her food?

Most pet stores carry the suppliment. The one I use is called 3V caps. I pop a hole in the capsule and put it on the food. They really like it, so its not a big deal. I get it through http://www.kvvetsupply.com.
