scabs behind the ears
I've noticed my cat has got some scabs behind his ears, he has just been wormed and doesn't have fleas. He's washing there a lot and when he does it makes his back legs tremble. I can't afford the vets for another couple of weeks and am wondering what the problem is and if there's anything i can do to help him until i can take him, thanks!

hi John and welcome this is actually quite a common problem and usually always due to food allergies or intolerances. especially to the carbs contained in dry food. I will send you a link to a very good article, if I can help you understand all this or make some changes please post again.....
If kitty is eating dry food, it is very important that the first thing you try is a good diet of canned food and preferably with no GRAINS....change over slowly so as not to cause diarrhea ...let us know how it goes. good luck

Very many thanks for excellent advice, it actually matches up with a recent change in his brand of kibbles. I found the article you linked to interesting, an eye opener! I have since changed back to former brand and started occasionally giving him meat instead in case it continues and i do have to take him right off dry. Anyway i will let you know and again many thanks from both of us:)....p.s i'm Andrew btw the johnstrang thing a long story!!
