My cat has a strange spot on her back. What type of tests I should ask my Vet to perform?
The cat is 8 years old strictly indoor and she has no contacts with other animals. Recently, she got a spot on her back:
The last year she had a very similar spot which was initially blueish and later developed like the one on the picture. The Vet treated her with Oxycort, but I don't think it has helped much. It took few weeks to be recovered with fur.
I believe that the spot is not a result of flea because the cat was recently treated with Biocan. The other possibilities are:
* allergy - how to test what causes it?
* excessive anxiety - I see no practical reason, but few years ago she had the symptoms of feline hyperesthesia
* hormonal disbalance - the Vet said that it's difficult to detect and it should be completed only during a peak period
Any advices would be highly appreciated! Many thanks in advance.

That is not just a spot, that's an open wound. I don't like to mention cancer, but you should have it biopsied to rule it in/out. If your vet can't give you a good answer, you need to find another vet, a specialist perhaps.
I just did a little internet search and found two Biocan vaccines, one against rabies and one to treat ringworm. So it has nothing to do with fleas.
