Hello & welcome, Sheila. I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.How long has she had these signs?Where is she licking/grooming specifically (ie neck, belly, etc)?Are you seeing any changes to the skin (ie pimples, pustules, scabs, sores, ulcers, redness, dander, or crusting)?When did you last treat for fleas? What did you use?Any diet change in the 4-6 weeks before this started?
