Hi. About 10 yrs ago my all black kitty, Panda started to have noticeable bald spots on his belly. At first it was in a small area & kinda on the light side. I was in my twenties at the time (young & dumb,lol) and I thought it was just because he seemed to be obsessed w/licking himself-what cat isn't?
But as the hair loss increased I noticed he had very red sores all over his tummy and of course became very concerned & took him to a vet. The vet said he had been exposed to fleas (apparently frm my bf's dog) and was suffering from a severe allergic reaction from the biting.
He gave him some kitty anti-allergy meds and sent us on our way. About 2 weeks later, he was noticeably healing, but his hair didn't appear to grow back much. So I waited a couple more weeks to see if his hair was coming back in, but he still had bald patches all over his stomach.
So I asked a vet over the phone if there could be another problem & he said that my cat might have allergies to food, & he did.
