Dog was EXTREMELY itchy. Figured it was fleas, had him bathed and shaved. Starting today he will only walk a few steps before sitting down and attacking her back end. Even stoped eating and drinking

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear about Charlie and his itchiness! It sounds like he is really going or it when trying to itch his back end. As well as bathing and shaving him, have you used an appropriate flea treatment on him and your other pets today? Will he drink any water at all?

I will wait to hear from you.
