I’m Dr. Jenn and I’m a licensed veterinarian with 18 years of experience. I’m here to help with your question about Paris Milton. How did he get his name? :)

I’m so sorry you’re having this problem, but glad you’re looking for the information you need. You may join the conversation at any time by typing in what you want to say then clicking REPLY or SEND. Then we can chat back and forth until you’re satisfied with the information I’ve provided. I’ll do my best to ear your good rating, because that’s the only way I receive any compensation for helping you.

In order to help me help you better, I’ll need a little more information. To start with, please tell me:

  • How long has the skin issue been going on for?
  • Is Paris acting normally otherwise?
  • Do you have him on any flea control? If yes, what?
  • Are you able to take pictures of the lesions and upload them for me to see?

I’ll be standing by and awaiting your reply. Thank you for using our website.
