Hi, I have 4 adult cats, my daughter brought home 2 kittens. All of my adult cats now have injuries on the lower jaw. I have never seen anything like it and would like some ideas on treating them. Tres, Duckie, Lielue, and Rajah are still eating and drinking but seem less active. Duckie's lower jaw is almost hairless and has had pus that we were able to express. She isn't happy with us but it appears to be healing. We cleansed the areas with H2O2 and have applied heat to hopefully cause spontaneous drainage. I just would like some other ideas if you have any. A long time ago I was told to let a cat alone and they will heal themselves but it is just disconcerting to see. Thanks ssemah
Not sure what that'd be.. When we got our kitty from the SPCA she had some wierd thing going on with her tail.. It almost felt like it was broken.. It was kind of bumpy and lumpy.. All the people there felt it and said it didn't seem broken.. So, we took her home.. Then the hair started to fall off.. She had a good 2 inch spot with just NO hair.. Finally we took her to a different vet instead of the vet there.. Turns out she had this strange case of ringworm.. Thank GOD no one else got it because we had all been touching it left and right!! And she'd rub up against the other cat.. But, my point is, we had NO clue what it was for a month or so until we had another vet look at it.. It took MONTHS to clear out completely on medicated cream, but her hair came back in and she's quite the pretty girl now if I do say so myself!! I'd have them looked at just in case.. Or at least call the vets office to see if they've seen anything like it before
I wanted to thank you for your advise. I contacted a friend who works with animals and told me what it sounded like and I looked it up. It is Cat Chin Acne, I have never heard of such a thing but they gave home treatment instructions and we are going to give it a try. Now to live through the treatment with all our finger.
My cat had chin acne really bad too. She lost all the hair on her chin and had pussy pimples all over . We tried all different creams etc. but nothing really helped it. Then we changed her hard food and it went away and she hasn't had it in about three years.
