Cat Hair Problems

Looking at your pet cat, have you ever wondered how they get to have so much hair? The answer is because their follicles are unique - each one can accommodate two to three strands of hair instead of one, compared to humans. The density of the hair makes for a nice coat of fur for these lovely pets. But what happens when we encounter cat hair problems with our beloved pet?

Hair loss in cats is normal at some point. Shedding of hair is  necessary to make way for new strands. This usually happens during grooming when the cat licks his fur off to keep it clean by his standards. Losing hair is natural because of the rough tongue surface. For the cats with longer hair, regular grooming is necessary so that their hair won't get entangled. They are also more prone to hair loss.

Excessive Hair Loss

On a more serious note, excessive hair loss could be worst. Take the cat to the vet for an examination in order to detect the problem early. The vet may be able to diagnose a few problems like ringworms and other such parasites, hormonal imbalances, skin diseases, and other diseases, which could be related to circulation.

To help avoid any of the cause of cat hair problems, it will be best to comb the cat's hair regularly to get rid of the dirt, dust, and skin flakes that reside on the skin surface. This will keep the cat's coat tangle-free and the will help promote better circulation in the skin for healthier hair growth.
