My husky collie cross has inflamed scaly skin and bald

Customer Question

My husky collie cross has inflamed scaly skin and bald patches
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the collie's name and age?
Customer: It comes and goes and seems worse each time but a vet in the past has told us its an allergy, she's two now and it starts with a bald itchy area above her tail, she has an appointment tomorrow
JA: What is the collie's name?
Customer: Raven
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Raven?
Customer: No
