Customer Question

He has developed sores that are scabing on his head nose and a few on his back. The hair comes out quickly. He also has red sores on his underside by his legs and groin.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
