Hello & welcome, 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?

Any changes to the skin (ie pustules, pimples, sores,ulcers, dander, crusting, etc)?

Are you seeing her groom more often?

When did you last treat for fleas and what product did you use?

Any diet change in the months before this started?

Any changes at home (ie in routine, people, pets, cats outside, furniture, babies,e tc)?
