Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long ago did this happen? Has she every had any issues with allergies in the past?

It happened about 2 weeks ago. Yes, she has a reaction to this spray before

Okay thanks for the additional information. Besides the spray did she receive any other treatment? If her skin is still twitching when you touch her back then it is most likely because she is still uncomfortable. This discomfort could be due to a combination of he still being itchy and in pain. Since she was biting at herself she may have developed as skin infection which may be causing the continued discomfort. So it is possible that she may need additional medication to help with her discomfort.
