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-its the only thing she will even touch). 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 can it help skin allergies too?
