Hello, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Can you tell me where on his body Attila seems to be prone to matts?

Have you noticed if he is grooming less these days?

Any dander?


Any change in his behavior or activity level (ie jumping on perches, counters, windows, etc) in the past few months?



How is he otherwise in himself?

Eating, drinking, behaving as normal?
