Customer Question
2yr old choc lab...

2yr old choc lab mix with extreme food allergies.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?

She developed a small lump under skin on back of neck near top of head. Then in its place was a round clear non smelling oozing sore that seems to be spreading. It is totally unlike her allergic skin wounds-this one does not seem to itch. Hair seem to be falling out. Hydrogen peroxide makes it bubble-unlike her othr skin sore from food allergies.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Joy my female dog:
