@MarleysOwner , just a tip to share.. they don't have ear hair, so they can have oily ears. sometimes vets misdiagnosis normal sphynx ear gunk as mites. surely you got some tips and product suggests from the breeder of what has worked well for him.

my go to for ear wiping out 2x a week is Trizultra with keto. my vet got me hooked on it years ago. I like it is a dual purpose product that can be used on skin. I wet cotton rounds and dab on skin , great to clean armpits and chins, necks.


your boy is so sparkingling handsome! what colors and dreamy eyes! hugs n head smooches

This has always driven me nuts. First of all, mites have a certain smell, and a vet should be familiar with that smell. Secondly, do properly diagnose it isn’t difficult to put a smear under the microscope. Sheesh.

I wipe him down with baby wipes and he stays clean and nice. However I’m definitely going to keep the ear advice in mind! Iuse something called Earth vibes but the smell is strong, I don’t like it for him.

I do have a quick health concern. Marley loves to sit on my heater at times. Because of that his paw has a bad scab on it. What would you recommend for that?

how is Marley's Paw? do you have a pic? you can email vet a pic and see if they want to see him if it is a bad scab/burn
