    Help! Black dots all over my boys stomach

    Always something new with my boy I’m not quite sure what this is. This is AFTER two baths, one with Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo and scrubbing with a mit, he used j&j his whole life, he’s 2 years old now.

    One of my boys is extra oily. Help? ALSO, fav products for cleaning paws?

    Hi all. I have 2 sphynx boys, Albus (6) and Draco (2), and Draco is significantly more oily than Albus. He gets dirtier faster, his ears get waxier faster, and his nails get gunkier faster. Which of course means that between baths (1-2 weeks), furniture and counters get more marks on them. Does...

    Natural Shampoo for Sphynx

    I’m wondering which shampoo people have found to be the best? Initially I visited Whiskers Holistic Pet Care store in 2013 and was recommend a shampoo from a brand called Gold, but this was discontinued within a couple of years. I was then recommended an algae shampoo from same pet store, and...

    Black paws!

    So I give my sphynx, Gemma, a bath every other week. However, her paws always seem to have dirt around them whether I scrub them or just lather. Baby wipes don't help and I would love to know any advice you could give me. Thank you!

    Peeling brown skin?

    Doom recently got his cone of shame removed after a surgery. We noticed his face getting dirtier than usual while wearing the cone. We wiped him down a few times, but it didn't seem too bad. The day we took off the cone (day staples were removed) my husband bathed him. We use coconut oil and...

    Dirty boy

    My boy, Beethoven, is about 6 months old. I bathe him at least once a week, maximum every three days, but he always looks dirty. He has brown spots everywhere, and the fur between his eyes and above his nose is an icky brown/green colour. I use a Burts Bees shampoo for kittens and I put olive...

    Dirty Kitty. Recommended cleaning wipes?

    Hi! Kisa gets dirty so fast it is insane... I'm guessing it's the dust from the cat litter. But I still don't get how she gets that much dust on her, cause it's not like she lays down belly-first in the cat litter while using it, he he. I do use babywipes everyday to try to clean her a bit...

    Yeast? Need help with my kitty :(

    Hey all! I'm new here and I got my first sphynx 2 months ago. I was looking for information here, cause my baby got some spots on skin :( She already had them in cattery, but they were really small and only on her back and chin, so I though its just pigment or sebum (i have chinese crested dog...
