Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. What is the name of the food you feed her? Do you see her biting or chewing over her hips? What do you use for flea control? Do any of your pets go outside?

9llives(canned, 2 tbs perday) and Wal Mart dry food (not the best)... no chewing, no biting ...she acts normally...she does not have fleas ...i use ACTIVil and she truly does not have fleas, none of my cats go outside (15)...could it be a vitamin dificiency? i 'm hearing that you think it's a food issue, which i can't solve having 15 cats...they are all healthy. thanks for your time. kmd
