    Blue Bumps everywhere

    Hey! I’m new to this site and I have had a sphinx cat named monti for about 7 years now. He has had these blue bumps all over him, face body and tail. They look like blue pimples but some are getting really big. They don’t bother him and the local vets don’t know what they are. Any ideas? Thanks...

    Rough hair, rash, and constant flaking

    Hi! My Sphynx(Kumo) is 6months old and has been having many skin issues. It started about two months ago and the vet at the time said it looked normal and it was probably acne.

    Nail Help?

    Hey y’all! I need some advice about Kenzo’s nails. We trim & file them 1-2 times a week, and clean them once every week using a baby wipe and some q-tips, damp with Witch Hazel. He’s normally pretty patient during the process. If he lets out a ‘yeoww,’ once or twice, it’s usually due to some...
