Hair loss in cats is different from regular shedding. Cat hair loss is restricted to one area of the cat's body, but it may be widespread hair loss. Many health conditions can cause hair loss in cats. The most common cause of hair loss in cats and dogs is a flea allergy. If the pet is allergic to flea saliva, a flea infestation can cause patches of hair loss. The hair loss can be made worse if the cat scratches the flea bites.

When we speak of a veterinarian approaching a cat's illnesses holistically, we don't necessarily mean that the veterinarian is capable of treating any part of that cat. Most any animal doctor can claim that. Rather, we mean that the veterinarian chooses to treat the entire cat at once, instead of treating only the part of the body that is exhibiting the cat's symptoms.
