Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that Felix had fleas 3 weeks ago and now he is still having skin problems and feels warm (possibly feverish).

Do you have a thermometer to get his rectal temperature? I am concerned about a possible flea parasite that may have been transmitted to him during his infestation period. We need to know if his temp is normal.
