Customer Question

Lily is a 8yr. old Maltese who is getting tumors the size of a pencil eraser all over her body. One on her front "elbow" is black in color. They seem to itch because she scratches all the time with no fleas. She has a bath every 6weeks with oatmeal soap. Could these "tumors" be cancers?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the veterinarian. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Lily
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Lily?
Customer: She only goes outside to potty
