My little Westie has...

My little Westie has broken out in itchy red bumps that are almost like blisters he is very uncomfortable what can I do

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. What is the Westie's name and age?

Rocco. He is 8 yrs old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rocco?

This only happens about once a year. We know he has allergies, but I don't know if bathing him helps or makes it worse. He chews his feet a lot too
