    Spot or lump?

    I noticed this spot on my cat about a week ago now, it's not really changed. I was wondering if anyone knows what this could be?

    Dark patches of skin on neck and front paws

    Hi all! Hoping someone can help. My baby boy Odin has like a darkening of his skin on his neck and front paws. I thought at first maybe this was just a build up of oils, but bathing him hasn’t helped any. He usually gets a bath every week or every other week with wipe downs in-between. I am not...

    Hi, I need some help. My poor guy, Artie, is itching so so bad. He’s constantly rubbing himself on me, the bed, the sofa, or whatever he can find to scratch on. I just got him last week and haven’t changed his food much except to introduce some freeze dried raw by Stella and Chewy. He came to me...

    Skin patches

    Hi my 4 month old Sphinx has these spots on her back that haven’t gone away and the side and they aren’t raised or itchy or anything but they just look weird, is it worth bringing up to the vet when I see them again/make an appointment for?

    Chewing end of tail and dark freckle like spots. Allergy?!

    Multiplying Large Black Spots

    I've dug into some of the past forums here on the skin spot issues, but I hadn't seen anything quite like what my almost 13-year-old male has. He's a black & white tux and over the years has had multiplying freckles and moles. He loves the sun, so this is no surprise. Within the past couple of...
