    Can i clean skin with babywipes?

    Ok so my baby needs to stay put about a month because he had back surgery... My question is what can i clean his skin with? Cause i cant give him a bath and he is really filthy already and smells like urine because he pisses himself... Is a non scented baby wipe ok to wash his skin? or what else?

    Does this look viral to you?

    i just got my cat and this happened. I would say an allergy because he is expired to a lot of new things but I don't see hives.
  25. Susanhughes

    Help! Not sure what this is

    My Sphynx just developed his rash on his belly. Any ideas? I thought maybe ring worm?? Or a viral thing? Lots of new stuff so could be an allergy but it doesn't look like hives.
