My cat lost a few small chunks of hair and skin on his face…

Customer Question
Hi, My cat lost...

Hi, My cat lost a few small chunks of hair and skin on his face today. It's raw and bloody. It also happened a few days ago.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the cat's name and age?

Jerry and he is 7.

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

He had a vet visit last year and everything was good. Though he's always had a tendency for flaky dry skin and little red bumps on his stomach sometimes.

Can you share pictures of what you're seeing?

Is Jerry entirely indoors or indoors and also outdoors?

He is entirely indoors. I also have another cat who has no skin issues whatsoever. I did try attaching files...let me see...

It doesn't look like they've come through. Sometimes if the files are too large they will error and not load.
