my cat has been to the vet he was diagnosed with a food allergy to fish so we discontinued that diet and went on a holistic grain/meat diet but in the process of discovering this allergy he licked himself and bit himself like crazy causing his skin to be raw due to the fact that he was so itchy. the vet put a cone on him gave him some antibiotics and special food but every so often he gets himself if i turn my back for a second while he eats which is the only time his cone is off he is in terrible pain from all of this even when the cone is on and i was wondering if anyone knows an over the counter remedy or herbal/holistic approaches anything for pain hes got antibiotics and the cone he just needs something to sooth him or relax him anything i feel horrible for himView Thread
