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

Is he having issues with urine or feces? When did he last pass urine?

Any history of falls, traumas, or slips prior to this starting?

Is he overgrooming, itching, and thus losing hair?

Where is it falling out specifically?

Any changes to his skin (ie pustules, pimples, sores, scabs, or ulcers)?
