What could be the cause of our cats hair loss?
The hair loss is on the back of the legs, the lower back and abdomen and the tail. It's particularly bad at the base of the tail. They have both been grooming themselves a lot lately.
What could the problem be? Is there a cure? Will the hair loss be permanent(he's such a beautiful cat-- long haired flame point siamese)?
Then we get this new cat who is losing her fur, on a certain part of her body. Whatever it is spreads to another cat, losing his fur in the same pattern. It sounds more like a disease or a fungus than fleas.
It is not fleas, we have checked for that.
If anyone knows what it is, can you tell me if the treatment is expensive, because since both my sister and I are headed off to college this year it's getting harder to find the money to even take the cats to the vet.
Please help, I'm very stressed out about this.
