Customer Question

7 year old long haired male. I noticed he has hair loss in his urinary area and there appears to be small teet-like growths as there would be in a female cat.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Male cat named Fluffy....long story :) I've been using Revolution but it seems to be less and less effective.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Fluffy?
Customer: No, he's been a very healthy cat and doesn't seem to be sick.

I am sorry you are worried about Fluffy.

Male cats do have nipples, so that might be what you are seeing.

The hair loss may be due to his licking that area. This could indicate stress, or that he is painful in his lower abdomen. I have seen cats that had bladder infections do this. Having his anal glands checked to be sure they are not impacted is another thing I would check.
