Boxer with allergies or fungal issues... the vet treated him

Customer Question

Boxer with allergies or fungal issues... the vet treated him for a skin infection and then after it was better, put him on 3 zyrtec a day... doesn't seem to help much
JA: There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?
