How to Fix Cat Losing Fur

Jun 22 2023

Cats are like our selves they can develop allergies. This happens when their immune systems become sensitive to their surroundings and substances.

The main issue is usually flea allergies. I have a couple of cats that are very sensitive to fleas. Some flea solutions just do not seem to work or stop working.

Their skin can become itchy and can be associated with allergic dermatitis. They may also show symptoms like sneezing, coughing, and wheezing, itchy runny eyes, vomiting or even diarrhoea, snoring caused by inflamed throat and in some cases, paw chewing or swollen sensitive paws.

However, shedding fur is a natural part of feline evolution. It is important to recognise when the situation is not natural. Which is thinning fur or even baldness in some spots most situations are easily treatable.

Areas you may notice most thinning underside of the tail, tail itself, hind legs, sides, or genital area the skin could be itchy, scaly, or dry skin, red patches on the skin dandruff or excessive shedding.


Some solutions Brush or fine tooth comb your cat every day, Bath your cat, if necessary. Feed your cat a high-quality diet that contains levels of fat and protein. This can be difficult since a lot of pet food is heated to very high heats and destroys the minerals and nutrients this is the reason colour brown is so prominent.

Change flea medication since fleas can become immune. Also probiotics and minerals and vitamins can be added to their food to help them build up their immunity.

Often enough vacuuming is not enough carpet cleaning to make sure to move all dirt dust and any small eggs that may be tight in the fibres of the carpet.

All types of overgrooming can relate to anxiety and stress which can be with relation to environment or a change or newcomer.

Can also be an overactive thyroid, which is known as hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis, is where the thyroid gland produces too much of the thyroid hormones this can cause the hair follicles to die. Could mean hormone therapy dru gs may be needed.

If a cat is in pain, they may lick the site to release the pain and discomfort if arthritis then these are some herbs that can help.

1.Aloe vera · 2. Boswellia · 3. Cat’s claw · 4. Eucalyptus · 5. Ginger · 6. Green tea · 7. Thunder god vine · 8. Turmeric.

There are also some good products on the market that can help.

Skin infections include bacterial, yeast or fungal like ringworm. To resolve this the best herbal treatment is lemongrass oil extract or lemongrass tea because both have antifungal properties to use lemongrass oil, mix a few drops of lemongrass oil with a carrier oil.

Fortunately, once resolved normally cats fur will grow back normally.
