Customer Question

He has an allergy to something on our rural acreage in Australia. Guessing, some kind of plant. I have been giving him zirtek daily and have just started him on kelfex 900 mg twice daily. He has given himself several hotspots chewing himself. He is a 6 yr old Doberman, weighing 40kg. Also wash him regularly with malaseb.
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?
Customer: Jasper. What do you mean by strange behaviour?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jasper?
Customer: He is also on nexguard , monthly for flea and paralysis tick prevention
