She is 14 years old and is excessively licking her two front

Customer Question

Hello. She is 14 years old and is excessively licking her two front legs and her chest. They are wet and matted from all the licking. This began today.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did the cat have a fall?
Customer: Not that I am aware of, but she may have. Why do you ask?
JA: I'm just trying to get information to help you.
Customer: Yes, thank you. I was wondering what the connection is. I am sure you are way better at figuring this out than I am. I did go away this weekend for the first time ever and left her alone with her food.
JA: What is the cat's name?
Customer: Solstice is her name.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Solstice?
Customer: She was confined to a porch and her usual freedom was not granted to her for 48 hours. I don't know if that would cause this or not.
