    Help I I’ve never seen this before

    My sphynx just had two kittens Tuesday night and I’ve never seen this before I’m thinking it’s mama over cleaning her baby? I’m not entirely sure though I wanted to get some opinions before I take her to the vet due to the closest vet being a long ways away

    Red bump rash?

    Noticed this on our Luna. At first I thought it was a food stain at quick glance. She is not in pain nor does she pick, scratch or lick it. It’s allergy season here in Phoenix AZ and scorpions are also starting to appear. Should I be worried? Thank you!

    Raw Skin/ Irritation / Ringworm/ UP?

    Noticed a little rash on my little guy a couple days ago and it’s getting better but isn’t healed yet. I’ve noticed it one time before. My other sphynx does not have any skin issues so I’m thinking it’s not ringworm, they constantly cuddle and sleep together. Pickles my big guy thats fine does...

    Rash and scabs

    My poor baby has been covered in this rash for about 5 months now and my vet is convinced it’s a food allergy but I don’t think it is as I have done everything they have told me to do and it hasn’t gotten any better.

    Our cat is almost a year old. He started getting a rash on his stomache and his arm pits a few weeks ago. It doesn't seem to bother him.
