Customer Question

bald spots with some crusty sores at base of tail
JA: 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 cat's name and age?
Customer: flea spot application has fipronil used on other cat without problem.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: The crusty sores were there before the flea application

Hello. I am sorry to hear you have some concerns regarding your kitty. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.

Has he/she been getting the flea prevention monthly or did you just use it because of the crusty sores?

Is he/she licking or scratching at the base of the tail?

Any problems anywhere else on the body?

How long ago did you apply the flea prevention?
