I'm Terry, my eight year old weim has a few darker spots

Customer Question

Hi i'm Terry, my eight year old weim has a few darker spots on his coat. He is shedding a lot and i use the zoom. My son also has a weim and his 10 year old had this and his doctor said to use an antibacterial shampoo but i just wondered if thats needed. He is not uncomfortable and is an inside dog.
JA: IÂ’m sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Andy
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Andy?
Customer: Not really, I did change his food about a month ago to Natural Ba***** *****D. Have always used eukanuba or natures recipes.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
