Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How long has he had these signs?
Where is he losing hair? (over his tail base, belly, chest, back legs, tail, etc)?
Any changes to the skin at these sites (ie redness, scabs, ulcers, sores, crusting, scales, or wounds)?
Do you see him groom, lick, or scratch these areas?
Any new foods in the 4-6 weeks before you saw these signs?
When did you last treat for fleas? What did you use?
