Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has this been going on for? Is Lucky on any flea preventative? Has this ever happened before?
Okay thanks for the additional information. What type of flea collar did you get? It sounds like that she may have allergies. If that is the case then the most common cause for allergies are things in the environment, the diet, or a combination of both. She may need to be placed on a medication to help with the itching. A common medication that I prescribe for that issue is a medication called Apoquel. . Also if you are seeing fleas then you may need a stronger flea product to treat the fleas.
