used by some to describe a recurring illness with fever, anorexia, reluctance to move and pain on palpation of the abdomen and lumbar spine; of unknown etiology.
idiopathic hyperesthesia syndrome
dogs and especially cats may show an increased sensitivity to being touched or handled, with intense chewing or licking over the sensitive area, which is commonly the back or one or more limbs. No dermatitis is present initially, but it does develop with continuing self-trauma. The cause is usually unknown, but sensory neuropathies, psychogenic factors, arthritis, anal sac disease, tapeworm infestation and psychomotor epilepsy have been suggested. Called also acral lick dermatitis, psychogenic alopecia, feline hyperesthesia syndrome.
