Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Where does he scratch/itch most (ie back, tail base, belly, feet, etc)?
Any changes to the skin (ie pustules, pimples, redness, crusts/scaling, ulcers, or sores)?
What flea treatment did you use? When did you last apply it?
Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
Does he scoot or drag his bottom on the floor?
Any changes to his rectal region or tail? Any soreness there?
