How to Treat Feline Acne
This article stresses the importance of good nutrition, dish design, and stress management.
feed the cats here wet and raw and only use dry kibble for the new arrivals
that don't seem to know anything else. I then transition them to better
food if possible. Not all cats make the transition easily, if at all. It depends on how they were cared for as kittens, for the most part. In addition to mostly flat dishes, l work with them on emotional
issues they may have. Haven't seen any acne on chins in years.
Using "flat" dishes helps kitty in several ways: It keeps the food particles from accumulating on their chins; it eliminates what is known as "whisker stress" when they have to deal with the sides of a bowl touching them; and it's just easier to eat without having to "dig" the food out. If one still gets crumbs on the chin and doesn't wash it off, I do it for them.
