Senior Cat Losing His Hair

Category Cats

I have a 15 year old cat and he is losing his hair. He has no sores or skin irritations, but he is going bald. Is this normal? He does have an odor about him, but I am sure that is due to his age and his lack of grooming skills now.

Take him to the vet! It could be something simple, like grooming, but hair loss is also symptomatic of thyroid problems, which can develop in old age. A blood test will tell you if he needs medication, or just some help with a brush.
