Default Tips to control Hair Loss

1) If your cat is showing signs of hair loss the first thing to do is make sure that you are doing a good job controlling fleas. This is easier to do than it used to be, with the advent of the newer flea control medications

2) If flea control does not resolve the skin problems, some cats benefit from the addition of a fatty acid supplement to their diet. The essential fatty acids can reduce inflammation and make cats less likely to itch and scratch when they have allergies or other skin disease.

3) Some cats benefit from hypo-allergenic diets (feeding a food that does not contain "normal" cat food ingredients). There are several companies that make these diets, including Hill's and Innovative Diets. It is better to use these initially with the help of your vet, so that a good evaluation of the likelihood of food allergy can be made.
