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?
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.
