Optimal treatment for your cat requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow–up can be crucial, especially if your cat does not improve as expected. Administer as directed all medications prescribed by your veterinarian. Therapy must be continued until lesions have completely resolved. Alert your veterinarian if you are having difficulty treating your pet.

Recheck appointments are important to the long-term success of treatment. A diagnostic evaluation for underlying allergic disease like atopy or food allergy may be necessary if lesions recur.

Continue a complete flea control program as prescribed by your veterinarian even after the skin lesions have healed, especially in outdoor cats. Observe your cat's skin and mouth closely. Lesions are more easily treated if treatment is begun early in the disease process.

As most of these cases are related to allergies, especially flea allergy, aggressive flea control is recommended to prevent the occurrence of a granuloma. Other allergies cannot be avoided.
