Hi
Is she sniffly? Sneezing? Is she eating and using the litterbox - are you feeding her canned food?
Do you have a vet you can call if things get to that point, and who would let you send in these photos?

Shes not sniffly but she did sneeze like 2 times this week. Shes eating dry and canned food, shes also using her litter box. I can try to ask my vet if i can send them pictures but they dont check the emails and they never get back to me.

If you're in a dry environment, maybe try using a humidifier?

Let us know if that works, or what your vet says if you decide to contact them :)

Hi i just wanted to update that i did get her a emergency appointment for this Monday, someone thought it was ringworm but it might be allergies to make sure we have her in a cage until shes seen by the vet. I asked someone what to do until then and they said to apply coconut oil very lightly to her nose. Almost all the hair is gone at this point on her nose and she's still eating/drinking/ and using the litter box.

Hi i just wanted to show a update, i had to put her cone back on her since it looked like she was rubbing her nose too harsh with her paw. It was bleeding yesterday but now is scabbing over. I cleaned it with water then dried it and put coconut oil on it. I dont know if this is a bad thing.

Keep an eye on it, which I know you will :). Hopefully it improves :vibes::crossfingers::heartshape:

Hey so we saw the vet today and they confirmed that its ringworm :( my baby has to take Itrafungol until she finishes and we have her in her room alone until she's done with her med. Thank you for the advice though! :)
