Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome - My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.
Please tell me : How big is the area of hair loss?
i am away from home, but my partner has shown me on skype
it is a little larger than a coin,
OK thanks for that, here is the situation : This is not an uncommon occurrence, sometimes it is due to a reaction to the vaccine, but rarely the microchip since this is inert. At other times there has been a some transient low grade discomfort or irritation due to the actual injection procedures and many cats then lick and fur pluck at the effected area.
The good news : As long as there are no other symptoms then in my experience this is rarely a serious problem and the hair will grow back over the next month to six weeks without any great medical interference. It does this as the reaction naturally dies away or the levels of discomfort die down.
thank you scott! this makes sense. it is behind her shoulders, so we assumed that she would not be able to reach that area, but she may still reach it and scratch i guess.
we thank you very much for your kindness
indy, laura and erwin
thank you very much for your precious help.
I was able to sleep at night peacefull last night, as I was really concerned about her well being.
All the best
