Customer Question
Hi I just left...

Hi I just left this message for another doctor I hope I don't lose you my question is I have a5 year old poodle Chihuahua and she has us the rest of kala we live on the beach and she is Ben correction and biting at the back of her hind legs so much that when I look at them they look like this all these scratches on them that her legs are very tender to the touch on my husband I are trying to examine them and I'm just wondering what it could be what can I do to give her some comfort I gave her a bath earlier this week with them a flea and tick shampoo organic with lavender and register thoroughly but she still continue to fight at the back and she's losing her hair and I view that shampoo before in the past and had no problem and she gets groomed once a month so I'm just wondering how can I send you a picture or could it be being on the beach cuz we just moved back to the beach 2 weeks ago I just feel bad for her her name is mom

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

No she's a great dog is it possible for me to get a picture and send

I am very sorry to see that none of our other Experts have reached out to you before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time? Are you able to attach a picture to the chat at this time? Is she on any topical flea prevention?
