General information on Thrush
Thrush (Candidiasis) involves the mucous membranes of the cat's mouth and ear canals. It is a yeast-like organism which rarely invades the skin. Cats that live in humid environments seem to be those that are affected with the skin condition of Thrush.
Symptoms of Thrush
Thrush symptoms may include white, raised pockets of plaque that, when rubbed, bleed readily.
Treatments for Thrush
Thrush in cats, that involve the skin, may be treated with Nystatin ointment. Talk with your vet if you suspect Thrush. There may be an underlying condition that needs to be identified and treated.
