Q. Cat had swollen cheeks & would scratch her head. Swelling is gone but now she's acting twitchy and still itching a lot all over her body?
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. Very unusual signs you're describing. I guess the first thing I would be concerned about is some type of allergic reaction, especially with the swelling and the itchy head. I would suspect that the reaction is still going on and is causing the twitchiness. I would recommend a vet visit to look for an inciting cause, but ultimately to treat the reaction and relieve her discomfort.
