Mr Cory fur falling out! Moulti-talented feline - how do I stop it?

Mr Cory is having his annual moult. We both look like boiled sweets that have rolled under the sofa. I have to go to a job interview covered with, and snorting, fur. But enough of that - the little lad is shedding so much his fur is starting to look thin and spiky.

He's on 10mg of anti-thyroid a day. Shall I talk to the vet? He will be bald soon.

I'd talk to the vet, maybe it's his meds. Poor chap!

Some cats do have adverse reactions to the thyroid meds that can cause fur loss and skin problems so fluffy is right you should chat to your vet.

But what's the alternative? The op?

Op, radio active iodine treatment or food. Skin Robles can progress nastily so should be checked.
