Customer Question
I have a Papillon...

I have a Papillon, who suddenly, without reason to me, leaps quickly from one lying position to another, and sometimes leaps on me for me to scratch her back. She does not have fleas. What do ineed to do

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?

Her name is***** and she was one year old when we got her in 2008.

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

Well she pants a lot. And she is always scratching herself. We bathe her mostly once a week, in anti-itch or oatmeal shampoo.
