Hi I'm Dr. Carole and I'm a small animal veterinarian. Sorry to hear about Sandy. Where exactly on the back are the sores, the entire back or more near the tail base? Does she have significant hair loss in the areas of the scabs? Is she on any medications right now? Are there other animals in the house and if so are they affected also?
