Customer Question

My cat sheila is a female 3 years old. Under her chin is a lump about 1/2 inch or a little bigger. The lump moves around but does not seem to bother her. She also has dry flaky skin under her chin and neck which I can scratch off. In the process of getting rid of fleas off her and my other cats and the house. Thank you so much for your help.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. 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 sheila?
