I recently purchased a supplement skin, cat

Customer Question

I recently purchased a supplement for dry skin, for my cat and a couple of days after the first treatment he started losing his hair of which he now has a large bald spot on his back just beneath the area of treatment and the skin is watery and looks like it is beginning to become sore. does this sound like an allergic reaction to the supplement?

Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. HI am sorry to hear about your pets skin issue following a supplement. It is very likely that this could be a local skin reaction to the supplement.What is the name of the supplement?Do you also have a picture to post of the skin? There is a Add File button in the toolbar just above the chat box. The skin sounds like it may be infected. - Dr. H
