Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in small animal health. I'll be glad to help you with Fin. Some additional information will help me determine the best steps for you to take.

What is the reason you had to give him a bath?

If you brush the white dots, are they stuck or do they come off?

Thank you.
