Care

Naturally, caring for the sphinx is different from caring for cats with hair, however it is not as heavy as it seems – the main thing is not to forget to follow the basic rules: Skin Care Sweat from Canadian sphinxes is allocated throughout the body and, when dry, gives a brownish tint not only to the cat, but to all the things that it touches. Between the folds of the skin of the animal, skin secretions constantly accumulate, which collect dirt – therefore, the sphinx must be bathed periodically (especially since it transfers well to water procedures). If the skin is slightly contaminated, you can wipe it with a damp cloth specially designed for caring for animals. Given that the Canadian sphinxes (and others too) love to sunbathe, you can not let them stay in the sun for a long time: they can get sunburn. Ear care The ears of this cat need to be cleaned often – not only is their sulfur emission increased, but also in the huge ears almost all the dust that they encounter is collected. Eye Care Since the Canadian Sphynx does not have eyelashes, in the corners of its eyes there is often a discharge that needs to be washed with boiled water, or a specially designed product bought in a veterinary pharmacy – you should not use cotton wool, which often causes irritation, but with a damp cloth. Vaccinations Vaccinations against infectious diseases and rabies must be done – otherwise, if infected, the sphinx may die. Kittens are vaccinated against infections twice with an interval of two to three weeks, adults – once a year. Two weeks before vaccination, it is necessary to drive off the worms, otherwise the injection will not work.
