    Sphynx with Skin Conditions - What are you feeding?

    Thank you for the advice! I think I was so happy to find something that worked, I didn't want to mess with it for now. I'm in trouble if he develops an intolerance to raw rabbit. I wouldn't even know what else to try. We have tried chicken, turkey, elk, bison, duck, fish and veal... I guess...

    Sphynx with Skin Conditions - What are you feeding?

    My baby only does well on raw rabbit. I add Alnutrin vitamins for meat and bone and I also add a probiotic to his meals. That is the only thing that has worked thus far and he is doing well on it for having severe IBD.

    My cat is meowing my ears off and i don't know what to do!!

    My baby Phoenix (who is 4) is the exact same way... Then again, Phoenix is part Siamese and I know that breed is generally talkative. If we have played with him and gave him cuddles and he still meows, we generally ignore it. He eventually stops. Sphynx's are very high energy and a lot of people...

    Excess Saliva...

    Thank you for this! That is pretty much when mine drools too. When he is being lovey and also when he plays.

    Excess Saliva...

    Hi all! I was wondering if anyone else's Sphynx drool? I feel like sometimes my cat Phoenix will have drool on his chin, or he will drool on me when we are playing. Phoenix also usually doesn't completely close his mouth (as you can see from the picture)... I brush his teeth regularly and there...

    Cat Litter Question...

    So, I am using a clay based litter right now for my Phoenix, which is what the breeder was using, but it is dusty and messy. I was looking into the "Catalyst" litter, but has anyone used this litter? I hear it is good, but wanted some opinions. Pic of my handsome boy! :)

    I need recommendations

    You should join the Facebook page “Raw Fed and Nerdy.” The 80/10/10 rule is no longer the adequate percentages for feeding. In the end, you just do what you can to make sure your animal is happy and thriving and my baby is doing just that. I add the vitamins and probiotics that is lacking in the...

    I need recommendations

    It isn’t a balanced diet, which is why I add my own vitamins that are specifically for cats including taurine. It only says that because it is just the meat, bone and organ meat. I feed the rabbit blend. So I make it complete by adding what the meat is lacking.

    I need recommendations

    That is what I use! I order from Oma's Pride and then add the Alnutrin for meat a bone supplement into the mix. They do free 2 day shipping when you order over $100 worth of stuff.

    Question about adjusting a new Sphynx...

    We have two dogs. One of the dogs might take a bit to get used to Phoenix (my sphynx). Although the dogs are blocked off from the upstairs during the day so Phoenix would get the run of the upstairs all to himself if needed. My teen boys have been bringing him into their room to roam around...

    Question about adjusting a new Sphynx...

    Thank you so much for the advice! His name is Phoenix and he is 4. He is a retired breeder and was fixed almost a month ago. We picked him up last weekend. We cuddle with him as much as we can, but when we leave the bathroom and go back in later, he is scared again. I am hoping he adjusts soon...

    Best shampoo and cleaning methods for sphynx's that will not bathe?

    I buy a kit specifically for Sphynx Kittens/Cats on Etsy. It is amazing! The breeder I got my baby from even uses it. I attached the link for you to check out :) https://www.etsy.com/listing/655352745/4-hairless-pets-sensitive-cat-kit-sample?ref=related-2&frs=1

    Question about adjusting a new Sphynx...

    I adopted an adult Sphynx and brought him home Saturday Feb 27th. Has anyone else adopted an adult Sphynx? I need some advice on how long the adjustment period typically lasts? We have him currently in our bathroom so he is comfortable. He is now eating and drinking and using the litter box, but...

    Vaccinate or no

    I agree with Condo Commando... For my dogs as well I only do the puppy rounds and then as an adult I do them as needed which is usually at the 4 or 5 year mark. I do have to do rabies though as it is a requirement where I live. I also Titre Test my animals which tells me if the vaccines are...

    Neuter Concern

    So my Sphynx Phoenix is a retired breeder who is 4 years old. He was neutered 3 weeks ago now and it seems that he still looks like he was never neutered. I have heard that when adult cats get neutered the skin sometimes does not shrink. It doesn’t look swollen or infected. If anyone has any...
