One of my cats, Misty, who is FELV negative went through a period of
obsessive licking where she literally took hair off and had bald spots.  Vet

we did but whatever it was, it worked and she sort of stopped....

No, the vet says that it could be amoxicillin but it could also be something
FeLV related or even fleas.
We tried to eliminate amoxicillin and fleas, first.

The cat, however, keeps on licking herself bald. She does that on her chest,
near the two forearms.

to order the gel) and will go there in the afternoon to take the gel.

Thanks! I also agree with you on vets. It's very difficult, as for human, to
find a doctor who keeps up to date.

Today Trudi's nose is a bit better. I hope interferon did something.
