    Anyone’s vet ever prescribe Atopica for skin issues??

    My Tut is is almost 2 1/2 and has always struggled with skin issues. Mostly his neck and feet (the vet thinks it’s yeast) we have tried everything to no avail. Creams, shampoos, etc with the help of our vet. His skin isn’t horrible but it’s still a problem. We use Vetericyn when the redness...

    Yoda has more spots, what are they?

    Should I take him to the vet? The marks aren't raised, but on his neck he's got dry skin which he scratches.

    Skin issue or bruise on leg?

    My 17 week old baby just developed this mark on his leg. I can't tell if it is maybe a bruise or some other skin issue. At first I thought it was just dirt, but it did not budge, even when rubbed with coconut oil. Of course I'm worried about it. Has anyone seen anything like this before...

    Peterbald Skin Rash

He still has little black head looking things on his tail and face that I just can't seem to get rid of. It took him two...
