My 6 year old indoor/outdoor cat has an excessive licking problem. He licks his behind constantly. I took him to the Vet and they thought he had worms (he is a hunter) and treated him. He is still licking -- what else could it be?

Is he dragging his butt around on the ground too? It could be impacted anal glands.

Welcome to the forum and we'd love to see pics of your kitty. :cat:

Did you see any worms in his poop after you wormed him? Usually they need to be wormed a second time 10 days after the first. Check with your vet.
