Thanks so much for your very helpful reply.
I want you to apply raw honey to the scab several times a day. You can get it in Walmart.
You can apply raw honey to any sore or irritated areas. It is a remarkable healing agent:
Feed wet food. It contains oil that binds the hair to the shaft.
If Bear has loose stool you can start Kao-pectate (kaolin & pectin formula is the only safe formula for cats) at a dose of 1ml per pound or 1 tablespoon per 15 pounds of body weight every 6 to 8 hours. This is quite safe and will coat her irritated gi tract as well as absorbing bacterial toxins. You can use it for several days until her stools look normal. You can find kao-pectate (or any generic kaolin and pectin formula) at the drug store
He can also take an antihistamine if his hair loss is caused by allergies.
you can add one quarter of a 4 mg chlortrimeten to a tablespoon of baby food chicken or turkey with no onion or garlic.
Give it every 24 hours. It is very tiny so she will not detect it
Any of these are also acceptable:
Benadryl at a dose of 1/2 of a 25 mg tablet given twice daily or
Chlorpheniramine at a dose of 2-4 mg twice a day or
Claritin (Loratadine) at a dose of 2.5-5 mg/cat or
Zyrtec (cetirizine) 5 mg once or twice a day
It is important to ensure that the formulations used contain ONLY the antihistamine and are not combination products (e.g. Claritin-D contains pseudoephedrine, which could cause very significant adverse effects in a cat).
Please let me know how he is doing. Just reply here or if you prefer, we can speak on the phone.
