More About Skin Disorders
Skin disorders are by far the most common problems treated by veterinarians. Although skin problems are most often associated with dogs, cats also suffer from skin disorders, they just manifest differently. The most common symptoms include:
Cats are less likely to have actual skin eruptions, but they are bothered by stinging or biting sensations that cause them to suddenly jump or move around in an agitated manner. This is often accompanied by excessive grooming or biting at the skin.
- Dry, flaky skin
- Excessive grooming
- Twitchiness / Jumpiness
- Hair loss
A cat's skin takes assault from all fronts:
From the outside - External parasites, applied chemicals, environmental pollutants, etc.
From the inside - Elimination of toxic material from the body. This elimination is a natural process, but if your cat is suffering from poor nutrition, toxic overload or another medical condition, the skin can become overtaxed. Remember, chronic skin problems may indicate a more serious underlying condition.
The most common treatment for skin disorders is corticosteroids. They do usually offer quick temporary relief, but they negatively affect every organ. They can also mask other disease symptoms, delaying treatment. Remember, corticosteroids “push” symptoms inward and do nothing to resolve the underlying condition. Corticosteroids are not recommended for long term use.
Fortunately, many skin disorders can be remedied through proper nutrition, supplementation and environmental changes. Click here for details of the 3-step wellness plan to proper skin health.
