Au and Boris Update
Boris has been diagnosed with flea allergy dermatitis, a skin disease that comes from being allergic to flea saliva/bites. Thing is, Boris has never had fleas!
The vet says this makes no difference as cats can get bitten by one flea, and get this irritation.
As Boris has just had a course of medicine to reduce the itchiness, he recommended Frontlining him and applying some iodine to the various tiny scrapes he has. If Boris gets itchy again, then he needs more meds.
So at present we're in a holding pattern. It's now 654AM and as Au hasn't had anything to eat since 430AM, I'm off to tempt him with some lamb. Wish us success!
PS that pic of Boris posted yesterday was taken 2 weeks ago when he had an infected cut.
