How do I best treat a cat (siamese) which has suffered severe loss of fur?
I have just taken in a stray cat (siamese). She is suffering from severe less of fur. I have taken her to the vet who says she is just undernourished. Please help with some good ideas
and I would prefer using natural remedies.
A lot of animals have food allergies. Dogs and cats need to be fed a good food that has meat listed as the first ingredient and one that doesn't have bi-products. I have a pure bred dog that has severe allergies, which without the right food, would cause her to lose her fur. I feed her Blue Buffalo dog food. Yes, you pay more, but its worth it. Also, if using a cheap food, the pet does not absorb what they need from the food. A cheap pet food is like candy for a child.... there is no benefit. With a better food, the dog will eat less than with a cheaper and they absorb more from the food and they get hungry less often.... I know this is true because I tried this on my dog that doesn't have allergies.
If it really is just being undernourished (as opposed to mange or ringworm or something) then her hair should grow back on its own without much help. Just make sure she's clean, warm, and fed a nutritious diet (I would strongly suggest some wet food or raw meat [like turkey hearts, chicken livers, duck necks] at this point to give her system a little kick.) It might take awhile. I had a Siamese with ringworm once that took four months to grow her hair back in after she was cured. Also make sure your cat isn't over grooming herself. She might have a bald spot because she was stressed out and licking herself bald. If this is what's going on you'll have to find something that tastes really bad to spray on her bald spot or make her wear a cone collar until it grows back. Best of luck.
I have just started feeding her chicken livers and she is on wet food. I am also adding Brewers Yeast to all her food.
