Acne In Cats – Plastic Food Bowls May Be Causing Your Pet’s Zits

Did you know that cats can also develop acne and pimples? The problem can be attributed to a variety of factors, the most common of which are dirt that is trapped in the follicles of the hair, irritation of the hair follicles, poor sanitation, as well as stress. Also, food and water bowls that are made of plastic have also been identified as potential causes of skin breakouts in pet cats.

Cats that are hypersensitive to plastic can develop skin breakouts in areas where their faces come into contact with the plastic.

If your cat seems to suffer from skin breakouts, try switching to containers that are made of glass, ceramic, or stainless steel.

These containers also have the added advantage of being less allergenic, and easier to clean.

Your Marion, IA vet can also help identify the underlying cause of your pet’s skin problems and may prescribe medications to prevent future breakouts.
