Fur mites & excessive grooming

We made it to the vet and Piper was definitely not very happy with the visit. The vet ran a blood test and watched a sample of her fur under a microscope. He did a check on those patches and explained that those are her own doings in the course of cleaning herself. As it turns out, she's suffering from some sensitivity from fur mites plus the effects of excessive grooming.

She got a dose of Frontline spray all over and in another 2 to 3 weeks I've gotta do it on her again. So do Prue and Phoebe; I suspect they would have them too but not suffering as badly as Piper.

Thank God there are no major complications. Phew!!!

Thanks too for you caring cats and moms out there, Piper sends her purrs.

i hope her fur will start to grow when the mites are "vanguished".
