Can I get more information about Buckley? What does the skin on his underside look like? Any redness, scabs, crusts, etc? Is he scratching at all?
What treatment is he doing for the heartworms--immiticide or something else?
The skin looks fine - no redness, scabs, crusts, etc. He is scratching at some places but for the most part is leaving the underside alone. It's almost like a chemo patient - skin looks perfectly healthy but there is hair loss.
He is being treated with immiticide - he's in for his final treatments now over the next couple of days.
