Customer Question

My dog has lately become really sensitive to touch along his back and sides, he is on a raw diet with added herbs but he seems to be prone to mosquito bites and I'm wondering if that's what is causing it. My other 2 dogs are fed the same diet but don't seem to be affected
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** is a 2 year deaf American x old English bulldog
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bronson?
Customer: No he is normally pretty healthy

Can you tell me what symptoms you see from Bronson? Is he painful? itching? any bumps on the skin?

What flea prevention is he on and when was it last applied or dosed?
