Good Morning Alan and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Luckily, these diseases are called "species specific" which means that they stay within the species so your cat cannot catch this from your Mum, Alan, or vice versa. This scartching that Carlton is doing may be due to an allergic reaction that often will respond to benadryl given at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs. The scratching can cause tehse bare patches. If this does not help, have your vet examine Carlton to determine what is causing this and then get the appropriate treatment.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
Mum was concerned that the cat had caught Eczma off of her ( Wish she wouldn't have the cat on her lap a lot of the time ).....She's 87......Mum that is!
Thank you so much, Alan for your kind rating. It is very much appreciated! Do not hesitate to contact me with any other concerns that you may have about your dear Mum and Carlton.
Happy Holidays!!.....In your Wonderful Caribean location! x
p.s Whoops!!! Mistakenly gave Carltons age as 59! Should be 14!
Well Loretta, You are Welcome to stay for Christmas! lol
Thanks again & will give Benadryl a try! Hope Carlton will not object to the pills! Perhaps wrapped in a small piece of cheese!
Happy Christmas anyway!! From all of us!
