Feline hyperesthesia syndrome

Feline hyperesthesia syndrome (FHS) is a behavioral condition also linked to some neurological and dermatological disorders. It is also known as ‘rippling skin disease’, ‘neurodermatitis’ and ‘psychomotor epilepsy’. The main symptoms include intense scratching and licking at an area of skin. It can be a distressing problem for cats and their owners, as those cats suffering from the syndrome can self-mutilate quite badly.
