Re: Starting to get diaper rash/sores

I use the oatmeal pet shampoo from Dollar General :) it's $3 a bottle and sometimes on sale for $2.50, I have also gotten pet shampoo from Dollar Tree although I don't like that as much. Tropiclean makes an excellent shampoo, but it's pricey. I definitley need some kind of shampoo for Bean and Cherr...

Re: Starting to get diaper rash/sores

Open the pictures using some photo editor and shrink them, then do a "save as" and save it under a different name, that way you keep the original. .jpg is usually the best for memory if you can change the file type. cat coats come in all lengths. It takes a longhair cat two years to really come into...

Re: Starting to get diaper rash/sores

If you can express her three or four times a day that would be awesome. I generally express them twice a day. Longhair is more challenging. The fur holds the urine, so keeping her hind end clipped is going to be necessary. Cherry is a medium hair and while I was sick her fur got long, and I couldn't...

Re: Starting to get diaper rash/sores

I don't know what happened but suddenly Facebook disappeared you from my page, I can't continue our conversation in IM, I can't see your page. Did you block me somehow? Seems very strange.
anyway. Congrats!

Re: Starting to get diaper rash/sores

bright red blood is from irritation, it isn't great but it isn't anything to panic over. It's hard to think of everything, we all overlook things that's why it's nice to be able to put our heads together.I agree in general Royal Canin is quite overpriced. a lot of finding the right food is trial and...

Re: Starting to get diaper rash/sores

if the cortisone shots are helping it, I would think it is a more a reaction to something. have you tried a cortisone cream? I have used Anusol on cats with sole buttholes. I'm glad something works! Chlorhexadine is not an astringent, it does not burn or sting. it's a surgical rinse. the peroxide wi...

Re: Starting to get diaper rash/sores

when i've used a blow dryer i've put it on low and put it down on something a few feet away, but even then some cats don't respond well. I just thought of something else. the diapers you are using, do they have any kind of lotion in them? One of my girls gets peeling skin if I use diapers that have ...

Re: Starting to get diaper rash/sores

One more thought.
Cold laser therapy, I have used this treatment on a cat with a severe allergic rash (nasty red running sores) and it was extremely beneficial. It takes a few treatments, but i did see some improvement after the first. Something to ask the vet about.

Hello everyone, ugh, scald. the bane of an incontinent fur's existance. about zinc - whie it heals incredibly well it can kill a cat if ingested. I have used it on cats but only when I knew the area was diapered and secured enough so that they could not not not get to it. I've been caring for incont...
