Skin and coat medications for cats typically focus on relieving symptoms of allergies or skin conditions that cause itching, redness, and dry skin. Some medications are anti-inflammatories that help relieve symptoms by reducing inflammation. Others work to eliminate the allergic reaction altogether that is causing the skin discomfort. Other medications are meant to treat fungal infections like ringworm that cause skin discomfort. Medications vary between pills and liquids and vary in how easy (or difficult) they are to administer to cats. Costs also vary widely – common medications that are available in generic form are less expensive than name brand medications that are newer.
