Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Is he taking any medications but the doxycycline?
2) What does he smell like?
3) Any pictures to share?
4) Where is he scratching or chewing?
