• Lately my cat has been itching his neck a lot. The last time we were at the vet, they said his skin was fine. He doesn't have fleas, but the skin is red and irritated and he is loosing a lot of hair in that area. I was able to get him a vet appointment, but that is four days away. What can I do to make him more comfortable until then?

    Hi Katte, I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. It is great that you are taking him in to be examined. There may be something that can be given to help but it will depend on your cat’s overall health. Your local vet knows your pet and they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
