Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. I need to ask a few additional questions.

Did the vet do blood work to see what she is allergic to?

I know you tried a high protein diet but have you tried a hypo-allergenic diet for 8 weeks?

Any meds besides steroids?

Have you seen her licking or chewing the areas of hair loss?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the blood work came back fine. I have not tried a hypo allergenic food option. No other medications except for steriods. She has been licking and biting the areas
Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 1 year ago.

Wait, did the vet do blood work to see what she is allergic to? And the results came back she was not allergic to anything?

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 1 year ago.

There is a blood test that determines what she is allergic to.
