Customer Question

I have a 3.5 yr old shih tzu that has started twitching. We have been battling fleas and have given him 3 baths last week with medicated shampoo. One dose of the flea liquid that goes on his back and added a flea collar. I put ear mite medicine in his ears tonight. We do not see any fleas on him. His doesn't appear to b in pain at all.
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 dog's name and age?
Customer: meds were over the counter and for his weight
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: don't think so
