I have a three year old spayed bengal, Gabrielle, that has psychogenic alopecia. She has been on medication for approximately a month. At first she seemed to be reducing the amount of excess grooming and hair pulling that she had been doing, but now she is worse than ever. The inside and outside of both hind legs are pretty much hairless and she also has a bare tummy and a small bare patch on the inside of each forarm. I have all the windows blocked off so that she cannot see the ferals outside but maybe she can smell them - I just don't know. She has been back to the vet and we have started a different medication which I hope will help. I feel so sorry for her. She must get chilly with so much of her hair gone. I feel quite helpless and would appreciate any suggestions. Anyone???
