Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has she had these signs?

Any changes to the skin (ie pustules, pimples, sores,ulcers, dander, crusting, etc)?

Do the welts feel like hives?

When did you last treat for fleas and what product did you use?

Any diet change in the months before this started?
