So she's just recently finished the tablets given. I would say there's been a slight improvement, she still does it though pretty sure it's not as much (always hard to tell though when im not watching her). But the bald patches are starting to regrow and I havent noticed any new ones form yet so I guess its helping?
Therefore what should I do now? I don't want to keep her on those meds all her life. I think she isn't stressed but rather slightly hyperactive, as shes happy as anything and when she jumps on my bed for some fuss in the morning she purrs away like crazy but then that's the time she suddenly seems to wash and "suck" on her fur. So I think the overgrooming might be caused by being too excited!
I don't want to stop that either though as she loves attention in the morning. So are there any ways I can calm her down aside from Feliway (never found much effect on her)?
Alternatively if it's allergy related, I've switched her back to foods she's eaten all her life, cutting out rice which was in one dried food. So I guess I have to wait and see if that has solved it, if not then it's more than likely it's by over-excitement.
