Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Do you have pictures to share of the wound?
2) What flea prevention is being used?
3) How often is it being applied?
4) When did this begin?
