Customer Question

My rescue kitten i found 1 month ago bottle fed for 2 and 1/2 weeks seems great in every way but around the back of his neck only has scabs. I thought it was from my other cat picking him up but im not sure

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb. Thanks for requesting me; I'll do my best to help you today.
I'm sorry for this concern for Winks. I do have a few additional questions to ask about him first if you don't mind:
1. Is this the only location where you've found the skin scabs?
2. I'm assuming that you don't ever see Winks scratching there, correct?
3. No flea issues, either?
4. Is there a lot of hair loss or only scabs when you feel there?
There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
