Bald spots on cats are not uncommon. They tell a story. A story that you should heed before ever considering treatment. It may not be a story that you are going to welcome. This is common when the truth is spoken. People don’t like it as it challenges the way they think. But the truth doesn’t change, just because it makes you uncomfortable.
If your cat has bald spots, then the mostly likely reason is toxicity. We live in a highly toxic world. Never before has the world been so toxic. New chemicals are being made every day that have permeated every aspect of our lives, and those of our beloved animals. Not to mention the trail of destruction they leave.
Highly toxic chemicals have been used on farms and gardens for decades. They are used in household cleaners, personal care products, furnishings. No adequate testing is carried out before they are released onto the market as this would interfere with sales. Some are eventually recalled, but not before they have wreaked havoc on the environment and on lives.
When we, and our cats, become toxic, the body’s immune system immediately tries to reduce the impact of this. The safest and most effective way to eliminate toxins from the body is through the skin. The skin is the least important organ of the body. Release of toxins through the skin will not cause harm, as it can through the liver, the kidneys, the heart. Yes, it may be unsightly and irritating, but not harmful.
This means eruptions will form and these can be itchy. Constant itching is likely to cause bald patches on cats. This may even develop into alopecia.
Most vets will try to blame an outside factor on bald spots on cats. Such as an allergy to a food, an abscess, ringworm, miliary dermatitis, psychogenic alopecia, folliculitis, acne, squamous cell carcinoma, hyperthyroidism, and so forth.
Certainly an abscess (usually from a contaminated bite) will causes itchiness and so baldness. But abscesses are short lived and they swell, then burst. Ringworm may also cause cat alopecia, but the circular lesions are easy to spot and differentiate from other eruptions.
For the rest, I suggest the reason is toxicity. It’s an internal problem. Commercial cat food is highly toxic. Many chemicals are added in the guise of nutrients. However, nutrients come from food, not a laboratory. Veterinary medications, including vaccines, are highly toxic and delivered directly into the body.
All animals, including us, can eliminate toxins when we are healthy. But the average domestic cat is not healthy. The food does not promote a healthy immune system because it is so far from a natural, species-specific diet. The normal living conditions can make a sensitive animal such as a cat, very stressed. Stress means the immune system gets tired as it is always on alert. Vets don’t recognise the healthy response of a cat to a problem and medicate frequently when unnecessary.
If your cat has bald patches, don’t immediately jump to the conclusion that you need to medicate. Medication only suppresses the symptoms. They don’t cure the original problem. How can they? You are adding more toxins into an already toxic environment.
Instead, you need to consider why your cat may be toxic. Examine the food, the stress, the medications, the flea or worm preparation you give routinely, the vaccines, the household chemical load, the garden chemical load, your bathroom chemical load. A recent carpet shampoo may trigger an already toxic cat to scratch.
Bald spots on cats are a prompt for you to reconsider what you are doing both to yourself and your cat. If your cat is unhealthy enough to exhibit skin eruptions, then it is likely that you are also toxic.
Natural cat health enhances the immune system, promotes a species-specific diet and only uses natural and holistic treatments. This system avoids all the common cat diseases including bald patches on cats and alopecia in cats.
Always, always think about the cause.
