Over Grooming in Cats

Added on 23 March 2017

Cats that Over Groom

Over grooming is a term used when a cat becomes obsessive about their grooming regime causing thinning hair,why cats over groom themselves broken hair shafts and bald patches. A hypersensitivity to flea saliva can trigger over grooming as can allergies to environmental substances or food intolerance. Cats are very susceptible to stress and anxiety which can also be triggers. Some cats can cause sore areas and can cause injury or infection to areas such as feet and tails. If you think that your cat is over grooming, please book an appointment as soon as possible as once this habit is established, it can be hard to break.
