Pruritus can be a frustrating problem because there are many different causes and, therefore, many different treatments. Thus, it is extremely important that you stay in close communication with your veterinarian until the problem is resolved. In addition, you should also do the following: Administer all medications as instructed.
Keep your cat's coat clean and properly groomed.
Observe closely for fleas. Flea infestation makes any pruritic problem worse. Consult with your veterinarian to establish a complete flea control program.
Observe for the appearance of new rashes, areas of hair loss or other new lesions that may indicate secondary problems like pyoderma which could require additional medication.
