    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. The rash scabs a brownish color on the top of his head, cheeks, neck, and front...

    Skin issues

    My cat,Igor, has had this weird rash along his spine since the day we picked him up. It started off as a small spot with red around it, and has gradually gotten worse. The vet has absolutely no idea what’s wrong, but I don’t think she is very familiar with sphynx cats to begin with. Has anybody...

    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. It didn't look like acne to me so have changed his food to grain free and also tried chicken free. I bathe them weekly...

    Spots on new baby Sphynx. Allergies or no?

    Hi guys! I just welcomed little Cairo into my home. Naturally, I’m worrying my butt off about his health. I’m concerned about a couple things. First, he had these little red bumps (very small) all around his skin. They don’t seem to bother him, but they are noticeable. He also purrs frequently...

    Anybody know what this is? :/

    My baby is 15wks. She randomly would get little scabs on her feet and legs so I changed to the Dr elsey blue bag litter and that helped clear up her legs. Then a week later skin around her eyes started getting red with little tiny bumps that looked like hives. Then she stared getting itchy...

    Discoloration issues

    Hey Everyone, I was hoping I could get some advice. I've had Lady Godiva for 4 years and she developed this brownish mark that spreads. I took her to the doctor, and they gave me a steroid spray and it went away for a few months but then it came back and started spreading. I took her to...

    Skin allergy or infection? Uticaria pigmentosa?

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has seen anything like this on their Sphynx before. It started 3 days ago as just a few red hives that seemed to rapidly spread and is still spreading. However the hives aren’t very raised anymore and it mostly feels very dry and flakey. Henry doesn’t seem...

    Scabby Rash On Chest & Armpits - Help!

    Hi! I’m a little lost and need some help. When my cat was little, I used to bathe her every few days with unscented hypoallergenic pet shampoo and then rub her down in coconut oil and all of that.
