Hi Jacustomer,

My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you. When I receive your response or reply, it will likely take me between 30-45 minutes to type up my reply if I am still online when I receive notice that you replied. I hope you can be patient.

has anything changed in the household before the symptoms started this time such as change in residence, switching food, ading a treat?

How about new treats or people food or cleaning supplies?

Is she an inside or outside dog?

Has a skin scraping been done on her?

What breed is Sunshine?

What testing has been done if any?
