This Litter Fixed My Cat's Skin!
There are new litters popping up all over the Internet all the time and it can be hard to know what to pick and what is safe.
One of the lesser known but biggest causes of skin issues in sphynx cats is the type of litter you use. Our sphynx kitties' exposed skin is super sensitive to environmental elements and it's so important to be aware of what comes into contact with your cat's skin.
One of the main things to understand when choosing which litter to use is that any litter made of organic material can cause an allergic reaction in your cat. So litters made of things wood, tofu, soy, paper, grass, corn, or walnut can all cause skin flare ups.
Sure, they're great litters - they're clean and pure, they don't use any chemical odor control or absorbers like some of the cheap clay litters do, but nevertheless cats can still be allergic to them.
To eliminate this cause of skin issues in your cat, here are the best hypoallergenic litters you can use. Dr. Elsey’s and Pretty Litter are the only litters I ever recommend to kitty parents as safe because I use them myself with my own cats, Stubbin and Charlie.
Now if you didn't know this and your kitty is in the middle of a horrible skin rash, I highly recommend switching out the litter you are using and getting them some ReNewedPet restorative shampoo and conditioner. These products are formulated with antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal ingredients to treat active rashes and skin complaints. Once your pet's skin is back to normal you can maintain their soft silky skin with our sensitive range of grooming products which are specially formulated for rash prone skin types.
Keep giving your pets the best of natural life!
