Scabs on their back and chewing at their legs and belly.

Customer Question
Scabs on their back...

Scabs on their back and chewing at their legs and belly

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Did the cat have a fall?

No...it's kind of a long story...I have 4 cats. I recently adopted a stray cat...and now one of my other cats is just chewing her fur off like crazy. i am wondring if she got something from the stray

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name and age?

Which one of the 4?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

The one with the problem is about 7 years old and her name is ***** ***** I call her Itty Bit

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Cloie?

I adopted her from a farm..and she was always hiding under a coal stove & has always had a cough. I considered it like cat COPD maybe. She won't go outside when it's cold out

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has she been showing these signs?

Any other changes to the skin (ie pustules, pimples, redness, crusts/scaling, ulcers, or sores)?

Any diet change in the 2 months before this started?

What flea treatment did you use? When did you last apply it?
