Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. How long has Elvis had these signs?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?Any issues with his urination at the moment (ie licking his genitals, straining, passing urine more often, changes in urine color/clarity/odor)?
