    Big black spots on Skin and crusty ears

    Hey everyone, Just a little update on Kairi and her spots. I just took Kairi into the vet to check on these spots. Unlike my homes vets, this one is very familiar with sphynxes. She said that she believes the spots are just overactive melanin producing cells. Because they are not raised, not...

    Big black spots on Skin and crusty ears

    Thank you so much. Vetericyn was what I was using so that's a relief. I asked every doctor she saw on her trip to the VHC about her skin issues but they all think it's dietary/low immune system/ will go away after the surgery/ worry about it after the surgery and therefore did not take any...

    Big black spots on Skin and crusty ears

    Thank you so much, I had no idea Castille was harsh on the skin. It was recommended to me by a long time Sphynx owner and breeder. Gosh, I just keep messing up don't I?

    Teeth and jaw questions

    Update: Kairi has a fused mandible on one side and needs surgery to correct it. In the last month she has lost weight and her mouth opening has gotten smaller. The surgery is risky as the place where the fusion is, is near an artery and a bunch of facial nerves. If a mistake is made Kairi could...

    Big black spots on Skin and crusty ears

    So this is Kairi a 5month old elf ear sphynx. She has a lot going on with her and is very small and thin due to there being a fusion of two of her bones in her jaw. We just got back from seeing the dentist and scheduled surgery to fix her jaw and allow her to eat more smoothly and efficiently in...

    Teeth and jaw questions

    I don’t know because she has no symptoms but this. We’re taking her in once we get home from this trip we’re on with her-about a week.

    Teeth and jaw questions

    Hey guys! So kairi is 4 months old so idk if this is her teeth growing in or what but she never really opens her mouth fully only about halfway (picture included of her yawning). She isn’t experiencing any other symptoms of anything so I’m really at a lost. Is this normal? Are her teeth just...
