Customer Question
Hi, i have a...

Hi, i have a kitten but shr has developed these small harder bumps on her neck but no scabs or anything on skin only under. At first i thought her brother was scrathing and bitimg her but no scabs amd they are seeming to grow or more come up.

Veterinarian's Assistant: 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 kitten's name?

Malary and she hasnt had any flea medications she is only two months old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the kitten?

No i rescued her there mom must have been killed or taken a friend found her and her brother mickey wondering aroumd looking for food ive had them almost 6 to 7 weeks

Are you seeing any behavior changes with Malary or is she acting pretty normal?

Do you see her scratching at her neck or any where else?

Has she had a kitten check up or vaccines since you've had her?
