Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

Keiko about 5 he is a rescue

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Keiko?

About 5 years

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Keiko?

We thought it was allergies to food the last time it happened and changed all of his food. he started getting better sores went away and gave him the triflexis again and now more sores.

It would help me greatly to see what you are seeing. Is someone able to share photos with you from home or would you prefer to table our discussion until you are home later?
