Frequently Asked Questions

My cat has dirt on his/her chin that we can't seem to clean. What can we do about it?

The dirt you see on the chin is a common skin condition in cats, known as Feline acne.  Feline acne should be treated by the vet because there is a difference in severities to this skin condition.

Cleansing the skin with diluted disinfectant is recommended daily, please just don't use human skin disinfectants as this can be harmful.  Applying a warm cloth to the chin, if your cat allows you to, will open the pores, allowing better cleansing of the skin.

For more information on Feline acne, please read our following article;
