Customer Question
Constant itching. I found...

Constant itching. I found a prescription for Hydro plus. Wondering how f it would relieve her skin n rritation.

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 and age?

Macy and she is 5

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

No. I think it is more a skin condition or possibly inflammation from allergies to fleas
