Skin Soother vs. Obsession Solution - Which is right for my cat?

Skin Soother vs. Obsession Solution - Which is right for my cat?

Dear Spirit Essences,

I’m trying to figure out which formula would be best for my cat (Nagisa) that has been pulling the fur from her belly. I am looking at Skin Soother and Obsession Solution. What is the difference?

Hello Leah,

We’re sorry to hear this is going on! We suggest that you first take Nagisa to the vet to find out if any medical issues are causing this behavior.

Factors such as food, inhalant and environmental allergies, as well as everyday stressors, can lead many animals to believe that they are under attack from their own skin. Constant itching, licking, pulling out fur (including "bald belly syndrome"), self-biting and in cats, Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome, are too often the result. Skin Soother helps to break the cycle of anxiety and balance the energy system, allowing the healing to begin from the inside out. Skin Soother is formulated to rejuvenate an animal’s energy system that is besieged by the anxiety, itching, twitching, fur pulling, and other symptoms brought on by various skin conditions. 

We formulate Skin Soother using various essences that are known to be helpful for easing allergic reactions or irritations of any kind. These essences also help to soothe and promote patience, which can be extremely beneficial for an animal with a skin condition or allergy. This formula would be a good choice for Nagisa if you determine that her fur pulling is being caused by a physical/environmental issue.

Obsession Solution is for animals with obsessive-compulsive behaviors, such as excessive grooming, licking, pulling out fur (including "bald-belly syndrome"), scratching, chewing, or self-mutilation. It’s formulated to help relieve the obsessive emotional behavior associated with allergic skin disease, including hot spots. 

The essences that we use to make Obsession Solution can be helpful for those suffering from deep disharmony in their subconscious mind. This can manifest as restlessness, panic attacks, compulsive behavior, etc. When this disharmony is alleviated, a feeling of peace can return. Obsession Solution may be the right choice for Nagisa if the fur pulling is due to a behavioral/emotional issue.

It sounds like Obsession Solution would be a good place to start because it addresses the behavior of fur pulling. You may want to consider Skin Soother in addition to Obsession Solution if you feel Nagisa has been exposed to the stressors that we previously mentioned.

We hope this was helpful. Best wishes to you & Nagisa!
