flea allergyI recently adopted an abandoned cat. He was so starved and thin that he tottered when he walked. He also had a severe flea allergy, which the vet gave him a steroid for. I am keeping him as flea free as possible but the allergy has returned 3 months later and the vet has given him another steroid shot. I think his immune system function is low due to his starvation and stress and I think he may have food allergies. I have him on a diet of chicken mince and brown rice, but would like to know if there is a homeopathic remedy I could give him.

The problem here is that I am in the dark about symptoms of the "allergy." What happens to tell you it is an allergy? Looks like?? Acts like??....Sabra

Thanks for your assistance. The vet had advised me that it was a flea allergy to begin with, however, I had him on a diet of processed foods and when I changed brands the dermatitis and scabs flared up quite severely. It is very scaly, especially around his ears and base of his tail and weeps and bleeds when it is severe. Since changing his diet it has improved dramatically, however, he was also given a steriod shot so I'm not sure which one is helping him most. My main concern is to find a treatment for his whole self rather than keeping him on steriods.
