A six year old, 9.25 lb, female spayed, domestic short hair cat was presented for examination. The cat had been pulling fur out excessively and chewing on her coat intensely for three to four weeks. She was diagnosed with parasites and External Wind. Her treatment consisted of a combination of a Chinese herbal formula, Jing-Tang Herbal’s External Wind, aquapuncture, manual parasite removal and nutritional supplementation. Her signs subsided quickly and her coat returned to normal.
