My male cat licks his belly raw, why?
by Debra B
Angus is 8 years old. We rescued him when he was a kitten along with his sister. At least 4 years ago he started licking his belly until it became red and raw. We've taken him to the vet numerous times and we also visited a dermatology vet.
They've tried everything. Nothing works. Change of food, litter, pills, creams, injections... Clearly they have no idea so they just keep trying. I've literally spent thousands of dollars.
Keeping him in a onesie is a terrible option. He's licked through 2, destroying the fabric. He also goes into a state of depression where I have to lead him to his food and the screened in pool area.
Aside from the fact that his obsessive licking must be uncomfortable for him, it's leaving stains all over our furniture, floors, couches... My husband is fed up. :(
He's now on CBD oil. It doesn't seem to be making any difference.
Help for Angus, please!
