Just when they thought they could relax a little...

Chang Chang:

They say I had been very 倒蛋 because just when Xin Xin's condition had stabilised, I had to present them with another set of problem.

For the whole of last week, I had been rejecting their offer of wet food mixed with crushed dry kibbles. So they had no choice but to just feed me wet food every meal. Hahaha......

Then I got pickier and rejected my usual Natural Balance Ducky wet food and they had no choice but to feed me Fancy Feast Tender Liver. But I deliberately ate less than 2 small cans a day until I started losing weight. And because I had not been seen drinking, I got a little dehydrated.

On top of that, I slept more often though I am still racing around the house every 2 nights.

They became worried as I had just been given my 2nd steroid injection late Jul for my itchy skin, constant licking and a sore on my lips. The 1st injection in late May managed to reduce the sore and reduced my itchiness but it wore off after 1.5 months before the sore erupted again.

Suspecting that there was something wrong with me after the bad experience with Xin Xin, they packed me up and sent me to the vet last night. My 4th visit in 3 months!

The vet stuck something up my butt, looked at my mouth, pressed my tummy, checked my heartbeat but could not find anything wrong. Then he drew some blood from me and ran tests for thyroid, diabetes and renal failure. He told them that at my young age of 4 1/2 years, the chances of contracting these diseases should be low. And he was right. There was nothing wrong with my blood tests at all. Daddy was happy with the test results but the vet was disappointed though. He kept using the phrase "unfortunately, we do not find abnormalies in the test results so we can't be sure what he has contracted and therefore cannot administer the right treatment."

And then he said he wanted my 大便 and 小便. I don't know what he sprayed near my rear region but my 小弟弟 went numb. OMG! Really scared me! And he tried to push something into my bladder to try extracting 小便 but of course I put up a good fight and he gave up after 5 min. Now Daddy and Mummy would have to collect those at home. :)

Before we left, they even injected some fluid under my skin to reduce my dehydration. I had seen them doing it to Xin Xin before but I never expected that I would be on the receiving end one day.

I was a good boy at home and immediately gave Mummy my 大便 sample. The fecal float test was negative. There was no parasite in me. Now it seems that only the 小便 test can confirm if there is anything medically wrong with me.

I have had this itchy skin condition since I was 1 year old. The condition only got worse in the last 3 months. Over the past 3 years, Daddy and Mummy had tested me for fleas and mites, changed my regular food to low allergen formulas, changed my shampoo to a mild hypoallergenic one, washed all my beddings weekly, experimented with different types of litter, experimented with various household detergents thinking those could be the culprit but none worked. The only thing which briefly worked for 6 months or so was the wheatgerm/evening primrose oil they fed me daily. It sped up my fur molding period but after some time, it stopped working again.

Do you have any suggestions how I can actually heal so that I won't cause them anymore worries? They suspect that my skin condition is the main cause of all my problems and if they can find out that main cause, I will never be itchy again. And when I am not itchy, I will have more appetite and therefore gain weight.

I only got itchy after the ginger furball Yuan Yuan joined the gang in Mar/Apr 05. Maybe it's her? Maybe I am allergic to her. Is that even possible?

Hahaha...your antics made me laugh out loud, Chang Chang!

I really dunno how I will cope with a cat like you...probably let you shed until botak! But I will buy a cat-shirt for you to wear to keep you warm. Haha!

My cat, Cotton, had skin allergies for a long time until the vet suggested it might be a food allergy.
The vet suspected this because the itchy spots were on her head and neck.
We later found that she was allergic to chicken.
But since your Chang Chang is eating duck food (which happens to be exactly what Cotton eats), maybe you can try something else? Natural Balance has a Venison version too...

CC's bald spots are all at the hind legs and stomach regions where he can reach and lick continuously. His head and neck are not affected.

NB no longer has the Venison Dry formula after last year's food scare episode but its Venison wet version is still available.

As Chang Chang's skin problem started when Yuan Yuan joined the family, it does point to the overgrooming and fur pulling being a stress response. It might be worth making sure that CC has some high up places to rest away from the other cats and also trying Feliway again. It comes in a spray too that you can spray at cat head height on all the places that they mark and bedding too. Sometimes in multicat households the stresses between cats aren't always noticeable by the humans. Also, Xin Xin being so poorly may have had an effect on CC's behaviour as she will have been having more attention/nursing and picking up on your distress. This can sometimes upset cats too.

Could the sore on CC's lip be a Rodent Ulcer? They sometimes respond well to a steroid called Depomedron. If CC has ulcers in the mouth, ask the vet to do a viral swab for Calici Virus. Both Rodent Ulcers and Calici Virus can be made worse by stress. Calici can be controlled well with Interferon (Verbagen Omega)

Very glad that Xin Xin is still doing well.

Best wishes.

Dear CC, sorry to hear about your allergy......vets are like that, they get so disappointed when they can't find anything wrong to explain the ailments......Max has lost 1kg since March 07, and they did all kinds of tests but nothing was wrong with him. So now we just let him eat as much as he likes until he gains back his weight.

Dear Cat_Aunty, what's wrong with Max? Not a small thing to lose 1kg in a year unless he has been pretty obese before that.

Yes, i have a cat with the exactly same problem as you described.
Do read up on rodent ulcer, jane is right in my cat's case. Once the mouth ulcer cleared up - we used some pretty unconventional method bec steriod did not work - the skin condition got better.

Hari has recovered after a lot of effort (esp on Hari's part) but he still has indentations on both upper lips (below lips) to this day. His coat is now full and he has put back the weight he lost.

Dear Anon

Nope, there was no ulcer in his mouth/lips like in rodent ulcer.

May I know what unconventional method had you used on your cats?
