Will my cat loose her hair from chemotherapy?

Erika Krick, VMD, DACVIM Veterinary Medical Oncologist, University of Pennsylvania, responds:


Cats often lose their whiskers from chemotherapy, and we don't usually see any problems as a result. In addition, cats that are receiving chemotherapy can lose some of their coarse guard hairs, but they are unlikely to lose enough hair to have bald spots.
