I just adopted a kitten from PetSmart (BARC) about a week and a half ago. She is 4 months old. I noticed she had some little scab on her little head but I never noticed anything else. Now she has a little black on her nose (not sure what that is) and her forearm of a front leg has some hair missing and it looks like a patch has grown back. I don't recall seeing it before but then again I never really looked. I can see a little of the skin under. Should I take her to the vet or just give it another week?

Thanks!

Hi! Since it's your new little kitten, you'll want to get established with a regular vet for her checkups and any future vaccinations she may need, anyway. You can make an appointment as a new patient, and bring up these concerns then. That way she's getting the preventative care she needs while reassuring you.

Take care; let us know how she's doing! :-)
