Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) Can you share pictures showing the areas of concern, scabbing and shriveled skin appearance? 2) When did this begin?
Ok. I'll keep an eye out.
Poor kid! He is definitely intensely itchy.I think your best bet is going to be having him examined by a veterinarian and treated. Some skin diagnostics will need to be performed to determine the cause of the itching. We can see this with a variety of ectoparasites like fleas, mites and lice. More often than not these are either transmitted by another animal or their bedding.Do you have a vet in mind for treatment or do you need help finding one?
So, not planning to return to that particular vet?
