Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
When was her last blood test?
Any changes to the skin where she is pulling hair out (ie sores, crusting, dander, pimples, etc)?
Where is she targeting?
Any changes to her diet in the past 4-6 weeks?
When did you last apply flea treatment? What brand?
