My cat is a DLH, healthy, but currently has a skin problem.

Customer Question

My cat is a DLH, healthy, but currently has a skin problem. She is nibbling on her fur, mainly on one leg, and is now showing some bald spots there. The vet has given her a corticosteroid shot (about 3 weeks ago) but it did not help. She is not a happy cat right now, restless and jumpy. What can I do to help her?

My name is***** Did the steroid shot help initially and then the effect wore off, or was it not helpful in the beginning either?
