My sphynx kitty Julie has a horrible rasha nd litter box problems please heLP!
Julie is a almost 2 year old sphynx and has had this rash before we got her, we could have said no we don't want her but we didn't, we hoped that the vet could help, but after 10 or more visits at 100 bucks each that we really can not afford to keep going, exspecially since they seem to have no idea of what is causeing it and or how to treat it. We are getting frustrated with the condition and her litter box issues are ruining our couches and floors. We love this kitty but it is getting hard to think of things to try. We do not want to put her down and we believe that if we give her away that they would end up putting her down. The rash starts out as little bumps then oozes and scabs over then the process repeats. We had to have he declawed because she was ripping up her little face and neck, she has been on several different meds and creams, tried speacial diets, different litters, we have 4 cat boxes which are kept very clean, but she won't poo in them.She wears a cone full time

If you have kept going to the same vet, you need a second opinion. If there is a veterinary specialist in your town, this vet needs to refer you to a veterinary dermatologist since this vet obviously cannot help you. You need to start back at square one with her with a new vet who specializes in feline dermatology. Declawing can stress a cat out and make it stop using the litter box. Before you take the final step of euthanizing her, please try a veterinary dermatologist or even a behaviorist to see if there is an anti-anxiety medication she can be on that will help her. Good luck!
