Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Sorry to hear this. Could you tell me if she is up to date with flea treatment? If so which one and when was it last given?
Also could you send me a picture of the affected area?
Yes just a moment whilst I have a look
These scabs are quite a common sign of self trauma, this can be due to an allergy (most commonly flea allergy dermatitis), but ear mites would also be another possibility.
I would recommend using a veterinary prescribed product such as advocate or Stronghold - these will likely be more effective against fleas than Frontline and will also treat ear mites also.
If the problem persists then a veterinary examination for prescription treatment such as antibiotics and steroids to treat the skin lesions may be needed.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
So long as they have seen her recently (usually within the last 12 months) then they should be able to prescribe this without seeing her
