Hello,
My cat is about 2 years old. I don't know if my cat has allergies or something else. Every year he will get bumps on his ears, he scratches them, then they bleed. His nose also sometimes gets swollen. Does anyone know if this is related to allergies or some kind of disease? My vet says I have to go somewhere else to get bloodwork done to check to see if my cat has allergies.. This happens every year and goes away during the winter. Need some advice..Help!!

Does your cat go outside in the summer?

Your vet won't do blood tests??

Hey,
My vet does the normal blood tests, but said since I want to check for allergies that I would have to go somewhere else and it would cost $250!! Yes, my cat is an outdoor cat and goes crazy if I wont let him go outside. I am going to call my old vet and see what he says about the blood tests. My cat is on Revolution and my current vet says he doesnt have ear mites. *shrugs*
