follow-up
by: Anonymous

Follow-up: I had a biopsy done on my cat. He has a deep tissue bacterial infection. I can't remember the name but I was told it is resistant to most antibiotics. He is on Baytril for 30 days. He started about 2 weeks ago and there is already an improvement. His hair is starting to grow back on those spots and he is not biting/licking at them anymore. It was also shown that he has an allergy, to what we do not know right now. He got a steroid shot of some sort. He is on a prescription food trial in case it is a food allergy, we will do more on determining what he is allergic to after the bacterial infection is cleared up. Right now he is improving quickly and hopefully it stays on this route!! Thanks for all the advice!!!

Cat with blisters :- (((
by: Anonymous

I have a rescue cat that came from a loving home. He was in good health and condition. He too started with raw blistered type sores that he was constantly licking and plucking the scabs off. He went to the vets who stated it was just down to fighting! Almost 12 months later he has not improved and more blisteres appeared. He went off to see the vet (not the same one!!!) and they think it was chemical burns. Heafty anti-bug juice and steroid later he has improved. The sores are drying up and he isn`t plucking at his skin. My friend watched something the other day about a dog with a grass allergy. I`m going to run this past the vets later this week. I believe that my cat was an indoor cat until he came to me and I have allowed him out. It was soon after he came to me that these sores started. Could he have a grass allergy?
