Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
When did this begin?Is it happening for both Remmy and Kyah?Are either on any medications?Are they wearing collars? flea collars?
Can you share pictures of the scabs?Do you see them scratching?
Can you share pictures of the scabs?
It would be a good preventive measure to give them each a dose of flea prevention. These types of scabs can certainly indicate allergic reaction due to flea bites. I would also try giving OTC human antihistamine chlorpheniramine. You can find this in the human pharmacy section. Each cat can receive 1-4mg up to twice daily to help with any itching that may be happening.I would also consider an exam for the girls as this type of scabbing can be seen with Staph infections. Without having pictures of what you're seeing, it's hard to know precisely what they're experiencing or what needs to happen but antihistamines and flea prevention are certainly a good start. If this doesn't help, it's time to see your vet.
