Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he been showing these signs?

Where does he scratch/itch most (ie back, tail base, belly, feet, etc)?

Any changes to the skin (ie pustules, pimples, redness, crusts/scaling, ulcers, or sores)?

Any diet change in the 2 months before this started?

What flea treatment did you use? When did you last apply it?
