bold patches

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for some advice, are cat kiri is 14 years old and for the past 2 years shes been getting bold patches on her legs and centre back, she grooms herself all the time pulling out big clumps of hair sometimes. When we took her to the vets we were told it was a flea allergy, yet she is treated every 5 weeks with frontline (and if any of are animals gets fleas i'm the first to know as i get biten) anyway the vet gave us some steroid tablets and they worked great until now over the last 6 months shes needed a larger dose for them to work, i dont like the idea of her being on tablets like these all the time as the vet has said large doses over a long period of time is not a good idea. I was hoping someone might know of any natural produces that might help, shes not on any tablets at the moment and is looking a really sorry state its easyer to say where she has fur then were she does'nt.

Was she diagnosed with eosinophilic granuloma complex? http://www.marvistavet.com/html/eosi...granuloma.html
If so, and you're looking for a natural supplement that my help, you could try Omega fatty acids (usually in salmon oil capsules). If you squeeze a 500 mg. capsule over her food for about 6 -8 weeks, it may help. If it does, you can give her one capsule a week as maintenance. Here's a thread about EGC (there are many others if you do a forum search): http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...ga+fatty+acids
