Feline Acne Wash
Specially formulated blend for cats who suffer from feline acne.
Yes, cat's can get acne too and most conventional topical creams tend to make it worse. This remedy will heal the break outs naturally and will not irritate skin or cause your pet to lose it's hair.
Feline acne is a relatively common cat disorder in which comedones, or blackheads, form on a catâÂ?s lower lip, face, and chin. The condition is often triggered by over activity of the enlarged sebaceous glands around the catâÂ?s face. Cats often rub their faces against various household objects. This behavior, called marking, activates the catâÂ?s facial sebaceous glands, in which the cat produces an oily secretion that is rubbed onto the object. Besides territorial marking, this oily secretion also serves to help waterproof a catâÂ?s coat and protect the suppleness of their skin.
Many cats, however, have sebaceous glands that overproduce these oily secretions, creating a greasy layer on the catâÂ?s fur and skin that can then lead to acne. The condition is particularly noticeable on white or pale colored cats, as their fur may appear to have a yellow, greasy discoloration. In mild cases of feline acne, the hair follicles around the catâÂ?s chin and mouth may become clogged with black sebaceous material, forming blackheads. Secondary infection may then follow, resulting in inflammation of the hair follicles and the formation of papules and pustules from which pus may be extracted. In severe acne cases, the area can become inflamed, swollen, cystic, or scarred.
Feline acne can affect any cat at any age. Preventive maintenance includes using metal or ceramic feeding dishes as opposed to plastic (since plastic is a breeding ground for bacteria), washing dishes on a frequent and regular basis, and wiping off the catâÂ?s face after mealtime.
Applied 3-4 times per day with a clean cotton ball. It will help to reduce the amount of sebum produced and will allow acne to clear up naturally without harsh chemicals. Will not dry out skin or cause skin to become flaky or itchy.
This remedy is safe if ingested and can be used with conventional medications and topicals.
This is a Witch Hazel based remedy and does not contain Tea Tree Oil which can be harmful to cats. Remedy has a pleasant aroma and will not interfere with cat's daily life style.
