• My cat has unspecified allergies that cause her to itch. She eats rabbit and takes half a Zyrtec a day as recommended by the vet. The allergies always get worse when fall begins. She scratches and cleans until she loses fur and develops hot spots. I have tried adding Omega 3 Oil to her food but then she refuses to eat. What else can I do to help prevent the itching?

    Hi Alice,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about your concerns. There may be other things that you can do to help her but this will depend on her overall health and medical history. Your vet knows your cat and they can give you the best advice on this.
