Customer Question
My sister fosters puppies...

My sister fosters puppies I recently adopted one of them a friend of mine recently adopted the other. My puppy developed a type of Maine she was getting bald spots on his head and side and feet but he is all better now. My friends puppy develop the same thing only the medicine did not work and the puppy has huge patches of misting here they called in some specialist and the specialist told them that it was his immune system attacking itself, and nothing seems to be working just when the little guy starts to feel better he developed these big using sores in his ears repeat the specialist a whole bunch of money but he has not given them any answers and and they just keep paying him

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about in?

Just nothing seems to be working I didn't know if you had any advice or any ideas
