Cat has licked all her fur off belly and spots on legs
I have five cats and 2 of them are sisters. The one has been licking all her fur from her belly and spots on her front legs for many years. She was put on cortisteroids and stopped licking for a while. Her fur began growing back. But it's not a medication that can be given long-term, so when the meds stopped, the licking started again. Now, the sister of this cat has started the same behaviour. I figure it must be a food allergy. Could someone recommend a nutritional allergy-free food that I can try? With 5 cats, I can't get them all to like/eat the same food. I had tried Nutro at one time, but none would eat it. Please help! Their bellies are all bare, pink and very sore looking. Presently, they are eating Purina One Healthy Weight Management. Thank you in advance for any help.
