my Sphynx has had chronic diarrhea for the past week. Her bath night was tuesday. This morning I noticed sores on her sides. Last night she had an diarrhea accident on our rug because it was like she couldnt make it to her box.

She is not acting lethargic or “sick” but shes just pooping all the time. Very runny. We have a vet appointment saturday at our regular vet, but I am going to try to get her to see someone else today.

Has anyone dealt with this before? Any ideas what it may be?

My baby has the same problem with the sores, they look identical. But Luna doesn't have diarhea. I don't know what it is either but I worry it might be ringworm. Perhaps have a vet look at it?
Hope someone else knows a little bit more!

Diarrhea can be caused by lots of things, always so hard to find out what is causing it. Did you change something in her food? New plants in your house maybe?
Do you know how to check she doesn't get dehydrated?

Hopefully the vet can do something about the diarrhea!
