Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome (Fsh) Is A Neurological Disorder In Which The Characteristic Neurological Symptom Is Rippling Or Shuddering Skin

Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome (FHS) is a neurological disorder in which the characteristic neurological symptom is rippling or jerking skin. FHS also shows behavioral abnormalities that are even more concerning, such as anxiety and generalized agitation. To track symptoms that may indicate Feline Hyprestheia Syndrome, keep notes on a calendar. Asian breeds such as the Siamese, Burmese, Abyssinian, and Persian tend to be diagnosed more often. Most cats with FHS show symptoms between one and five years old. Itchy skin due to flea bite could be a cause for erratic behavior in cats. Flea dip, flea collars, or the ingestion of household cleaning agents and pesticides should be considered. A cat with FSH can be helped at home by relieving stressors and providing exercise-based activities. A very effective and fun behavioral modification approach can be used. The outlook for a cat with FHS depends on the cause of the condition. Toxic exposures can cause lasting neurological damage. Many cats can recover once it is no longer in contact with the chemical. Depending on the severity of the issue , brain problems can carry a more guarded prognosis. . .
