Dr. Scarlett :

Can I get a little more information about Monty?

Dr. Scarlett :

Are you applying any topical flea preventative on Monty? Do you have other cats? What food do you feed him? Have you changed it at all? Is there any hairloss or scabs on his body or just some flaky dandruff? Did your vet give him any injections or have any idea what the problem might be?
