Customer Question

My male cat will be 20 yrs old in July. I've had many cats some with acne. Don't think that is the problem. Sores under chin that don't seem to go away??
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Squeek
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Squeak?
Customer: He has always been the healthest cat I've ever had, but 20 is up there! Drinking more than usual but we just moved to FL and it's hot.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello,

Bless you for taking such awesome care of your fur baby that he has reached 20! That is AWESOME!

I am sorry Squeek has sores uner her chin. It could be acne or miliary dermatitis.Both are allergic reactions.

You can apply raw honey to any sore or irritated areas. It is a remarkable healing agent:

In addition, add one quarter of a 4 mg chlortrimeten to a tablespoon of baby food chicken or turkey with no onion or garlic.

Give it every 24 hours. It is very tiny so he will not detect it

Please let me know how he is doing.

You are more than welcome. It is my pleasure to help such a wonderful person.

I am sorry the links did not work. Go to any health food store, get some raw honey.They sell it in Walmart too:

Just apply it to the sores and they will heal up in days.
