When you have a cat with skin problems, it's important to have them treated right away so that everyone is more comfortable. Nashville Cat Clinic is familiar with a wide variety of feline skin issues and can help make sure that your cat feels their best. Contact our Nashville animal hospital for help with the following issues.
Cats may experience skin issues as a result of food allergies. If your cat ingests an object they are allergic to, they may develop a rash on their skin, pull out their hair, or over-groom themselves. A veterinarian in Nashville can diagnose food allergies with a few simple tests and then help you adjust your cat's diet accordingly.
Cats may also experience cat skin problems due to environmental stress, which can be triggered by an emotional issue like moving into a new house or adding another cat to the home. In these situations, your cat may need medication to help them calm down as well as medication to clear up skin issues that have developed.
Cats may also experience skin issues in reaction to something that they've come into contact with. Potential contact dermatitis triggers include cleaning chemicals and topical creams. This condition can also arise following a flea or tick bite. If you suspect your cat has developed contact dermatitis, contact our animal hospital immediately. Our veterinarian will identify what caused your pet’s skin allergy and provide the appropriate treatment.
