Abstract

Feline acne was diagnosed in 74 cats. No age, breed, or sex predilections were found. No triggering agents were identified. Most cats (58.1%) had the asymptomatic, noninflammatory comedonal stage of feline acne, and received no treatment. Some cats (41.9%) presented with feline acne and secondary bacterial folliculitis/furunculosis. Secondary bacterial infections responded well to antibacterial treatment. Follow-up information was available for 82.4% of all cats, and the comedonal stage of feline acne persisted in every case.
