Hi everyone. It's been a while since posting on here, and I'm glad to see everyone is doing well. I'm posting this in the holistic vet forum too. I have one cat Topaz that has severe skin allergies (to what I'm unsure) where she completely chews her legs, and belly to where they bleed and scratches her ears and face raw. I've tried antihistimines, topical creams, diet change (but she won't eat any of the food I've tried, she is so little and skinny even eating the food she is on now (Science Diet indoor cat). She improved slightly on Wellness cat food but then decided she wouldnt eat it. Shes had bloodwork and UA, and all was well. She's recently been on Depo-medrol steroid injections ever 8-12 weeks which cures her for the time, but intervals between itching has become about 6 weeks, and I don't want to keep giving them to her since they can cause diabetes. I'm interested in starting raw diet for her (she LOVES raw chicken necks and eats them better than any other food ever) to see if it might help her allergies. I know it helps for food allergies if they are having GI problems, but ahs anyone heard of helping skin allergies? My other cat Gulliver is also very thin and vomits regularly in addition to having Chronic respiratory problems, so I want to try him on it as well. Does anyone here feed raw? what is your experience with it? I've been reading up on it a lot, but if it doesn't help her, I don't know if it's worth investing in. Any help is appreciated.

Also, an update on my newest cat Kengee. She had her ears amputated last spring to get rid of her squamous cell carcinoma and is doign great. no more cancer. no more painful ears, and she is the biggest ham ever. I've never met a more friendly cat. Soon hopefully, she may go start visiting folks in the nursing home by my house! Here's a pic of her
