Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, I am Dr. Ratcliffe and I would like to see if I can help you. Have you checked your cat for fleas using a flea comb that can be purchased at most pet stores? Have you checked the ears for excessive wax build up or other type of debris?
Ear mites, fleas, stress and or possibly a food/seasonal allergy can all play a roll in the loss of hair, also known as alopecia, from your cat. Products such as Revolution, can treat ear mites and fleas. If no fleas are found and the ear canals appear clean, I would suggest having the cat examined to ensure allergies are not the underlying problem. If there are changes in the cat's environment, stress may be the cause. A veterinarian can prescribe anti-anxiety medications if needed. I hope I helped.
