My black tabby, Binx, has a big bald spot on the back of one of his back legs. It looks like there was a scratch there that has scabbed over, but the fur from around the scratch is gone. It's been about a week an a half and the spot is not improving... It does not look infected, nor is it pink, warm, or wet. Is this something that might improve on its own?
Just FYI: we feed them a 50/50 diet of Wellness crunchy and wet, and we recently treated them (about 3 weeks ago) with Advantage.
Edit to add:
also, the scratch, scabbing, and baldness happened while my hubby and I were on vacation away from the boys. Our air conditioner stopped working, so the boys were without it for about 24 hours (in a 75-90 degree day as we live in GA) before it was fixed...maybe this exacerbated skin allergies? They are indoor kitties, btw.
Any insight would be much appreciated! It doesn't seem to bother him, but it's distressing for us (mama and dad) to see his leg in such a state.
