Most essential oils are poisenous to them, I will confess to painting it on the fur around poorly areas though to prevent licking.

It works a treat.

You should get a collar put on until it has chance to heal, you can get these from the vet along with a suitable cream. Please don't put anything on yourself because she could get sick licking it off.

I'd also recommend a Feliway plug in, they release pheromones which relax the cat and are good for stressful times like introducing a new pet etc.

You can use Sudocrem on animals, I have used it on my dog before, but should still seek the advice of your vet.

You need to get her to the vet, Onamincepiebreak. Don't attempt to treat her yourself.

My baby (Siamese old girl) has always had a few emotional problems, but there getting worse, we just got a puppy and think this is too much for her sad

She's started licking and biting a bald patch, near her bum, and its now a big, open, weeping wound.

She did this before, when DD2 was born and it lasted a few months.

Before I got some tea tree cream to put on it, from the pet shop, but untill I can get down there, could I use sudocream? Or another antiseptic?
