When Gus had skin problems, I got some prescription food. After giving him some medicine, his skin problems went away, but I had all this special food left over, so I have been mixing it with his regular food.
Yesterday, I decided to stop mixing the prescription food in. That way, when I’m gone, it’ll just be regular food and no need for mixing.
In the evening Gus was scratching a lot. I don’t like him to scratch until he bleeds, so I went over to interrupt him. Then I saw the spots. He had the little red spots on him again.
I think I’ve confirmed it – it was his food all along. The partial mixture I’ve been using must’ve been just enough prescription food to keep the bumps away. I’ll need to go to the vet to get some more prescription food now. I’m not happy to have a special-needs cat, but I am happy to know what was causing the itchy bumps.
I gave him a bath to soothe his itching, then re-mixed his food.
