    Help! Wondering if this is ringworm

    Hey all! Hazel has been licking away at this area on her leg for the last week and a half. The vet is coming on the weekend but I worry that it’s ringworm. The area is quite dry and when she licks it the wounds become more red. Could it be an allergy? Thanks!

    Rash and scabs

    My poor baby has been covered in this rash for about 5 months now and my vet is convinced it’s a food allergy but I don’t think it is as I have done everything they have told me to do and it hasn’t gotten any better. The rash scabs a brownish color on the top of his head, cheeks, neck, and front...

    I have a beautiful 6 year old Peterbald kitten; Clawed Monet. Our care and grooming routine is regular and she quite enjoys the usual warm bath, light exfoliating and coconut moisturizing.

    Spots on new baby Sphynx. Allergies or no?

First, he had these little red bumps (very small) all around his skin. They don’t seem to bother him, but they are noticeable. He also purrs frequently...
