Help For Feline Acne

Did you know that cats can get acne just like people do? It can look like little pimples or like dirt on their chin and lip. If left untreated, the clogged follicles can become painful, causing hair loss and bleeding. It’s important to work with your veterinarian and use topical treatments to relieve your cat’s discomfort. Cleansing the area with an anti-seborrheic shampoo can help the skin heal.

There are a variety of causes of feline acne such as stress, plastic water dishes that harbor bacteria, poor grooming, chemical sensitivities, viruses and allergies. Changing your cat’s food can be an important first step. Avoiding allergens like grains, poultry and fish can be helpful as well as feeding a highly digestible novel protein diet. Raw frozen diets made with rabbit, for example, can help cats with acne, autoimmune diseases and digestive problems.

3 Natural Treatments For Feline Acne

Feline Acne is a condition that can be found in cats of any age (or breed), but is most commonly found in older cats. It is almost always found on the chin and lower lip, where the hair follicles become clogged.  Food and chemicals sensitivities, hyperactive sebaceous glands, stress, poor grooming habits or a compromised immune system can be contributing factors.  If your kitty has bumps on the chin or lip, it is important to seek out the advice of your veterinarian to rule out other causes such as yeast or ringworm and also because the area can become infected.

3 Holistic Tips For Feline Acne:

  1. Disinfect the area daily with topical treatments that can be obtained from your veterinarian.
  2. Change your cat's diet to a hypoallergenic, grain-free diet to help reduce inflammation.  Avoid dry food as it is high in starchy carbohydrates.
  3. Support your cat’s immune system with supplements. Using the Immune Support Kit and Power Probiotic for Pets can help.
