Check your cat’s skin regularly and contact your vet if you see signs of a skin infection (hair loss, red skin, pimples, crusts, scales).
Limit exposure to pollens and blooming grass. You can reduce house dust by frequently vacuuming or avoiding having carpets in your house.
If your cat has food allergy, please do not give them anything other than the prescribed food. Your cat may be allergic to treats or human food (table scraps). Even small amounts of the food that causes the allergy can trigger a reaction. Everyone that comes into contact with your cat should be aware of this and follow these rules.
Food with high levels of fatty acids can help to reduce the required dose of antipruritic medication (glucocorticoids, cortisol). Serve food with high levels of fatty acids for a minimum of 8-10 weeks to get the full beneficial effect.
Your cat’s food should be stored in a clean, air tight container.
Regular combing and use of a moisturising shampoo or conditioner will help reduce dry skin and itching.
Administer medicines, flea control and shampoos exactly as advised by your vet (even if symptoms seem to be resolved).
