    Skin inflammation

    Hello everyone, Since I had my Sphynx last october, I've had issues with his skin the the neck/belly area. He got very intolerant (liquidy diarrhea) to a lot of cat diets. I got him under the care of a vet and now the only thing that seem to work is a recipe made of Hillary's Blend nutrients...

    Johnson's Baby Shampoo pH

    So I was bored, decided to read the comments on a suggested Facebook post for Johnson soap. In between the people getting irate over their patent company apparently animal testing and raging about how unsafe the stuff is, I found this: According to a quick google search " In Skin Diseases of...

    Worst Bath Ever

    Tonight was Godiva's biannual bath and I have to say I have never see her have such a negative reaction to water than she had tonight She screamed and thrashed and tried to claw up my arms and I'm just so lost She's fussed a little in the past, but never anything like this What could have happened?

    Tut's first bath

    I was hesitant to give him a bath since it is getting colder but being that he is home with me now I wanted to bond over it, build trust and make sure I knew what I was doing!!! I had been letting Tut in the bathroom and he had been exploring and jumping in/out of the tub (totally a set up) a...

    First bath for adopted Osiris

    Some of you may remember that I just adopted Osiris 1 mo ago. I was told that he had never gotten a bath at his previous owner's home, and hated them. Well, I just gave Osiris a bath and it didn't go as bad as I was expecting! He didn't want to go into the bathtub, but I was able to squirt him...

    Previous owner didn't clean his ears!

    Hi! I just got my baby (Albus) from his previous owner this past Sunday. He didn't seem to bathe him often (he wasn't very clean when I got him) and his ears are full of gunk! I haven't bathed him yet because I wanted him to get used to his new home, plus I ordered soap for him (Pawfect Sphynx...

    Dry skin

    I don't bathe my guy very often, once every two months due to dry skin( I wipe his face and neck daily). I've been using baby shampoo but I was wondering if anyone could recommend a natural hypoallergenic one.

    Amazing shampoo

    Ok, so I am kicking myself for not buying this D-greaser shampoo 4 years ago. It came via FedEx yesterday around 5pm and bath time was on!! I got the scrubby gloves and Fuzzy and started with the nasty nail dirt. It was amazing how I didn't need to scrub and the toe jam came right off. I...

    Acclimating Teto to bath time

    My kitten Teto, like most cats, doesn't much care for bath time. He's pretty well behaved about it but the first time I bathed him he cried and tried to jump out and it was rather unpleasant for both of us. I thought, hmmmm, I wonder if I can turn this around, so I did some digging, read some of...

    Update on Buster's bathing!

    I made a post a while ago about how much Buster hates his baths and asked for suggestions. I remember reading somewhere that it could be helpful to put a treat on a floating object in the bath. I kept treats in the bathroom and put a couple leading to the bath so he could walk up to it on his...

    Overall help needed with bath regimen!

    I've noticed with one of my babies that the day after I bathe him, he gets really really dry skin. I've tried several different shampoos and they all seem to break him out or give him super dry, flaky skin. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem and has any tips on how to clear it up...
