Hello he has qtr size bald spot

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Boston terrier

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the Boston terrier's name and age?

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Mack?

11

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

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I AM NOT SET UP TO MAKE PHONE CALLS AND DO NOT SEND THE REQUESTS, BUT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ONLINE. In order to give an informative and concise answer, it may take a few minutes before I respond back to you, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back immediately. If you have not responded back in 10 minutes, it may be a longer before I can get back to you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

Where exactly is this bald spot?

Is he scratching at it or anywhere else on his body excessively?

Can you get a picture and post it or attach it to your next message?
