I have a 2 YO DSH cat. She hasn’t had much in the way of health problems over the course of her life, but she’s got some weird skin thing going on lately.
Caveat: I have not used shampoo, no new food or meds and I haven;t changed anything in her immediate environment. No visible fleas, but then again, they aren;t always visible

About 3 weeks ago, she had a big scab peel off her shoulder, and then there have been spots ranging from a pencil eraser up to dime size where the hair and epidermis just seems to separate from the dermis, and falls out. It’s weird and, though I’ve spot treated with neosporin + hydrocortisone, she just developed this new one.

My and my sister’s cat have allergies to fleas and they will give themselves scabs like that from scratching/biting. The vet told us to give them Benadryl. Also, getting my cats nails clipped helped since he couldn’t scratch himself as hard.
