My cat,Igor, has had this weird rash along his spine since the day we picked him up. It started off as a small spot with red around it, and has gradually gotten worse. The vet has absolutely no idea what’s wrong, but I don’t think she is very familiar with sphynx cats to begin with. Has anybody else seen anything like this? Any information would be very helpful! We are going back to the vet on Monday.

Thank you! The vet did consult with colleagues but they didn’t really come up with anything. They’re doing a skin scrape on Monday morning! Hopefully we’ll get something out of it.

It really looks like yeast to me...

Skin scraping would tell for sure.

Someone suggested that when we first noticed it, and we started using malaseb soap, but there was no real change. But we’ll decinitely get a skin scrape, thank you!

I read another thread with photos that looked a lot like Igor’s and everyone commenting said that’s what If was, so I’ll definitely bring it us.
