Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi this is Dr. Hill. Please give me a moment to type my response. Thank you.
Steroids are typically used if the itching is considered severe and are not able to be managed with other medications. Depending on what your veterinarian feels is best, ***** ***** either give her an injection of a short acting steroid to break the itch/scratch cycle or they may recommend oral steroids. Either are appropriate is you feel that she is still very itchy. Feel free to ask follow up questions. Please take time to rate my answer. You can continue to post on this thread for a few days, even after rating. Take care and I hope your kitty feels better soon.
