Does anyone have any experience with a cat that has severe allergy problems? My cat gets so itchy in the fall that she starts to cut herself and scrape all her hair off. This happened last year, in the fall as well, and the vet gave her a cortisone shot which helped clear it up. They said they can't always do this as the shots are not good for their health.

Has anyone had any success with solving this problem? Can the vet give a "benadryl" type drug to cats? I'm just wondering to get more info on options before i go back to the vet. I tried an "anti itch" medicine added to water from the pet store, it did not help. Also some water less shampoo with aloe in it - this did not seem to help much either. A bath is out of the question, she hates water. I'm sure the vet could do that but she will not allow me to.

I'm taking her to the vet soon as she is at the point where she doesn't do anything but scratch then sleep and repeat. It's truly awful for her. Thanks.
