Hi JACustomer, can you give me some additional info?

1) What product is being used as dewormer and for flea prevention? When was it last applied?
2) Have you seen any fleas?
3) Any licking of the paws? Scratching at the abdomen?
4) Any regular oral medications?

We got it from the vet a couple months ago. He's always had allergies, he's on grain free food, he's got what looks like dirt flecks around his anus.
