I just adopted my second little girl who seems to be giving me more problems than I could’ve imagined. My first sphynx (whom I got 2 years ago) has had no issues in health.
I adopted Jasmine 4 weeks ago (she just turned 1) and seems to have a rash that nobody can figure out. She came to me from a home that didn’t care for her like they should’ve. They didn’t spay her or give her the extra care sphynx need. She Seemed to have a small rash when coming to me so I took her to a cat only vet. She treated her with a “convenia” antibiotic shot for a bacterial infection and scraped her skin and gave me a chlorohexidine soak for her feet for a possible fungal infection in her nail beds. Not to mention the amount of black heads on her chin/mouth and her tail.
Well it’s four weeks later and I have been back to the vet again for a second opinion from the other cat only vet and she had no idea and told me to go to a “small animal dermatologist”. Attached are pictures but please please please has anyone seen this before? I have bathed her in a “malaseb” shampoo a total of four times now in hopes it would clear up.
Her energy is still high and she seems to be eating fine and her overall health/well being seems to be okay except for this.
It’s not ringworm because nobody in my family has contracted it. I am wondering if it is a food allergy or something of that sort! Also questioning if anyone thinks it could be a hormone issue since she hasn’t been spayed. If anyone has seen it and recognizes this as a food allergy - what should I feed her? Raw diet? Should I also leave out kibble and if so what should I be feeding her?
CAN ANYONE HELP!?
I haven’t introduced my two sphynx yet because of this rash and am so anxious for them to become best friends. (Also any insight on how to first introduce them would be much appreciated - much anxiety over here Lol)
