Winter eczema or Military Dermatitis in my cat Madam Puffybutt.

Every Year, my cat has suffered with Military Dermatitis and she doesn't have fleas but rather a skin issue that only pops up in the winter. She looks so miserable because she normally has a beautiful puffy full coat of fur and during the winter she looks like a rag doll with large areas of hair loss and scabs on the skin and she itches and she bites in those areas. I have tried to talk to my vet about a payment plan or volunteering in place of payment or even a discounted rate but to no avail. I am a single mother with one son in collegfe and one fixing to go to college this fall of 2012 and we have 2 cats who it costs me $165 a year for their physicals and shots and when I got a rough estimate as to how much it would cost to treat her, it was like..oh my. She is a sweetheart and she loves us so much and she has always been there during times of stress and troubles to just cuddle up and make me feel like I am not alone. I have tried the natural remedies route also but there really isn't anything to help aside from antibiotics and steroid treatments. I have been with my vet for a long time but I understand his inability to establish a credit account, he has taken a hit in this economy as well. I just want to make her feel as comfortable as possible and be there for her like she has been there for me. I have struggled through this economy but I will not give up my pets and even though it has been tough to keep up with rising costs of food and utilities I manage to keep them fed and their shots up to date. It's the responsible thing to do as a pet owner, they depend on us.
