Hello
I took my sphynx in for her dental cleaning as I do every year...but this year when I picked her up, I was told they put her on Clavamox to help clear up the little red bumps that I usually call prickly heat......well I didn't think anything of it..but 2 days later noticed my cat's tongue had turned black! Has anyone ever heard of this happening??? My vet called a specialist to consult...I was told to stop the Clavamox and return in 4 days....my cat is eating, sleeping, pooping and peeing--actully nothing different except for the black tongue, which is not cut or swollen--I am praying for her beautiful little pink tongue to return.What have I done?
I am new here and I am so grateful for all who can offer me help
Thank you

Hi...My cat is 5 years old.....today the area does not look as black as it did a week ago....perhaps this is flushing out??
As long as It's getting better, just keep an eye on it!
