Customer Question
I have a...

I have a 10 month old bulldog and she is broken out all over, if you lift the hair its patches of dry skin and she's also balding in spots

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 dog's name?

Storm

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Storm?

I chamged her food because i thought it was a food allergy
