How old is she?
What does she eat?
When did you use spot on?
Thanks for your prompt attention.
She is around 6.5 years old, always lived indoors. I feed her felix normally, although i have tried almost every brand. Her eating habits haven't changed since the scratching started - i also give her dry treats, normally the go-cat brand. She only drinks water, as she doesn't seem interested in milk.
I only used spot on yesterday, but the scratching has intensified over the last few days prior to using this.
I am sorry your girl has this trouble. Scratching can be caused by parasites, underhydration or allergies.
In the future use advantage as Spot on is not very reliable.
Offer her tuna or salmon water to drink.
Feed more canned than dry food:
You can give her one quarter of a chlor-trimeton every 12 hours for allergies:
If she is high strung try a feliway plug-in:
Please let me know how she is doing.
I hope she is better very soon.
Warmest best wishes,
