He's kind of a disaster

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

He has a lot of allergies but he still has a lot of skin issues, he is currently peeling like a person would with a sunburn on his stomach and in is front leg armpits, and along his flanks. I know he often has yeast infections and yesterday his stomach was kind of sweaty looking

Veterinarian's Assistant: There are all sorts of infections the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?

Monroe 5, I'm really just trying to decide if I need to have him see a dermatologist.

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Monroe?

5 years

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

He's on a limited ingredient diet and takes Apoquel daily
