Dear Dr. G, how are you? This time I found a bald spot on my

Dear Dr. G, how are you? This time I found a bald spot on my dog's forehead. He had a smaller one since almost three months ago, and I noticed it got larger after I got back from a trip recently. Is this hot spot and what should I do? I only give him Sentinel monthly, and I'm thinkin about getting a K9 Adventix II. Do you think that's a good combination to prevent and kill flea and tick? I'm confused by these meds' description. Some say they kill larvae and eggs, and say prevent from hatching. Would Sentinel and K9 work great for preventing all the problems due to flea and tick(no matter it is killing or preventing those insects)?

We have a dog that is diabetic. She has been receiving her

We have a dog that is diabetic. She has been receiving her injections normally and eating well until a day and a half ago. She stopped showing interest in her normal dog food. Today I was able to get her to eat a small bowl of our other dog's non-diabetic dog food. I did not give her insulin last evening or this morning because she seems sluggish and this was the advice of our vet for when they are closed. She threw up about 20 minutes ago and doesn't seem to have interest in food now. She is drinking lots of water which I know is a sign of high blood sugar but she is sluggish which is a sign of low blood sugar. She hasn't had insulin since yesterday morning. We have a call into our vet but haven't heard back yet.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Into?Customer: She takes 3 units of insulin in the morning and 2.5 in the evening and is a mini dachsund.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
