Oh he's older at 15 and has an increased appetite, weight loss and hair loss. It's been going on for a while.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Fleas ?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Fleas?

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. You were speaking with an automated system before. I am a real person. I understand your cat has been losing weight, losing hair, and has an increased appetite. Can you also tell me if you are noticing an increase in urinating or drinking? I will be standing by.
