Hi, I'm new here and I have a question on one of my cats. She's a 3 year old, spayed, tabby who has always had sensitive skin. Every time you touch her (especially by her butt) her skin "ripples" because its sensitive. She lost hair a few times so I took her to the vet and they gave her a shot and baytril which helped for a while. Lately she's started losing her hair by her thigh again from constant licking and it looks like she has dandruff. Does she need to go on the allergy medication again? And what could be causing this allergy? I read that it could be food but all my kitties have been on Iams Lamb and Rice their whole lives (on kitten food when they were babies). I thought this was a good food for them? Could a bath with some sort of moisturizer help her dandruff? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
