My indoor cat has scabs on its neck - what is this a sign of?

The best thing to do is to get her checked out by a vet. The chances are that this condition can be treated easily, with little discomfort to your cat.

The vet will also be able to evaluate the condition and make sure that the scabs aren't signs of something serious.

However, from the symptoms that you have described, it is most likely that your pet is suffering from one of the following conditions:

  • Allergy: Allergies can cause irritation to the skin, which causes your cat to scratch the area. This in turn leads to the skin bleeding and scabbing over.
  • Infection: Infections can also cause symptoms like these. They come in a variety of forms, which are: Fungal, bacterial and parasitic. If left untreated, infections can cause serious problems for your cat - but, luckily, the vet should be able to treat any form of infection easily, with a course of medication.
The best advice I can give you is to get take your cat to the vet, so the problem can be treated properly.

Poor little thing obviously has a skin problem. Check it out with your vet and she will probably give you a special shampoo to bath her in. If it persists, the vet may want to take a culture.

If your cat has a leash, the leash might be too tight - or the skin's infected by allergies of some kind.
