Allergic Dermatitis? Oh boy, I’m so tired… The route to be followed in order to find the correct diagnosis often takes a long time. This is for both the cat owner and the veterinarian sometimes very annoying.
Today, I took Mr. Bowie to Natalie, an experienced cat dermatologist. She performed some additional medical tests. Mr. Bowie may be allergic to either food or environmental factors like dust, pollen or mold. Food intolerance is not uncommon in cats. Natalie recommended to gradually replace Mr. Bowie’s food with a new hypoallergenic food for the next 8 weeks.
And to be sure, two samples of ear wax were sent to the lab to exclude fungus, parasites and infections. We’ll have the results back in three weeks time.
Don’t worry, Mr. Bowie. I’ll stand by you. And you got a lot of wonderful devoted followers and fans.
