    The sores have gotten worse

    I have posted on here recently regarding the sores on my naked Peterbald Draco's under arms and belly. I'm currently in the process of elimination of many things but nothing has worked so far. Today I've noticed the sores are even worse. I'm really concerned. Has anybody else's cat had these...

    Sores on paws

    One of my Sphynx has sores on her front legs. They seem to be the worst during the summer months. She licks at them and they are dark and patchy. Anyone have any ideas on what it could be? She’s not on any medications and receives baths about every 1.5 weeks with wiping down in between. I...

    Kitten has anal sores??

    Hi everyone, I bright my baby Egg home 4 days ago and have noticed there’s odd sores or something on the sides of his anus. His stools have been loose and smell terrible. But otherwise he seems in high spirits, eating and drinking well. My vet doesn’t have an appointment for 3 weeks, which I...

    Severe Mastitis?

    Hi everyone, I recently rescued a sphynx from a breeder. She develops “sores,” that the breeder told me she always got. Her last litter was in the summer so she’s had the condition some time. I took her to the vet as soon as I got her, where she was diagnosed with severe mastitis that has...

    My baby has raw cuts and bumps all over her

    My poor baby. It seems like she is always fighting something. When I was giving her a bath I noticed she had a bunch of raw open wounds on her head and on her neck. Moreover she has a load of raised bumps on her body. I'm freaked out and not sure what it could be. I plan on calling the vet...

    Lip sores??

    Hello SL Crew! Just wondering if anyone has run into this issue or something similar in their sphynxy owning days? I noticed that Nuhn had these little red patches under his lips since day one. Not gotten better, but not much worse either until today. They look a bit more angry. He's got adult...

    sores by mouth

    I am probably just being overly paranoid, but I noticed these little sores on his mouth this morning when he was sleeping on my lap. I am assuming it's just that his adult teeth are coming in and rubbing areas that aren't used to it. Also excuse that he has food on his face still.

    Sores on the back of Sphynx's legs

    A friend of mine has a problem with her Sphynx. I was talking about it to another friend on line who said she used to come here along time ago.
