Ragdoll Cat Nose Scab:

Bettie wrote in wondering why her Ragdoll Cat, Teddy, continuously gets scabs on his nose:

I also posted it on Instagram – I will do this when a photo is sent with the inquiry:

Chicken Liver Powder

Another reader wanted to know if it was OK to give her kitty Chicken Liver Powder.

Feline Acne

Hi!

I love your site and frequently refer to it. I even bought your ebook. My kids are getting several of the products you have reviewed for Christmas!

I am a bit stumped at the moment…

I have two 11 month old ragdolls. A boy and a girl that are not related. I have run into an issue with feline chin acne. My Wyatt has just a tiny bit but Willa has a lot. I’ve been to 2 vets.

One gave me Chloroxylenol to use as a scrub, but when I looked online it said this was toxic to cats.

I went to my regular vet and they gave me chlorohexidine to use as a scrub once a day. They also said to use 5% benzoyl peroxide—this doesn’t tend to stay on her very long. It hasn’t gotten better in the past week. I am waiting to hear back from my regular vet on what might be next.

I use metal bowls for food and water. I keep them clean because I know that can play a big role in acne.

Do you have any other ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!!

Jessica

I replied:

Hi Jessica,

Glad you enjoy the site and thanks for supporting us by buying our book =).

My all cat vet says that feline acne can come from allergies – I guess wheat and beef cause acne too. Check out this link on our site to learn more – https://www.floppycats.com/cat-zits.html

I would try glass bowls too to see if that helps at all.

My vet also says to use Stridex pads (linked to in the post I posted above) – I would never do that, but I guess some of their clients do.

Thanks
Jenny

  1. Wonderful post and sharing, Jenny!!! Very curious to the responses for poor Teddy’s nose scabs and for the chicken liver powder question!!! I have no information to respond with as I’m clueless on both inquiries. 🙂 <3

    Big hugs & lots of love!
