    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...

    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...
