    Update…unhappy ):

    Hello again all! I promised a little update about how my boy handles his new diet and shampoo. Well…I’m not sure if it is the right fix unfortunately. Ugh.

    Dirty Sphynx: brown spots on belly

    I have a one an a half year old grey and pink sphynx. He gets dirty a few days after a bath or a wipe down. I usually only bathe him once a month. Yesterday I noticed these brown spots that feel “raised” on his belly and his skin looks irritated too. I just bathed him and the spots are still...

    Dirt spots that won't go away

    Hi there. My sphynx Ophelia has developed built up oil areas on her belly back legs, around her butt and one spot on her neck. I know it is not her coloring because she didn't have these spots when I first got here a year ago when she was three. I've tried washing the area and I tried coconut...
