Puff the wonderful

Itchy behind

Right after I was adopted my humans noticed that I was always licking my behind. Daddy found dead fleas on me especially under my chin. After getting a good bath and having my pretty long hair chopped off I was put on Advantix to make sure the fleas were gone. My humans kept on checking me and I remained flea free, but could not stop licking my behind. I was consumed with an itch and went at it like crazy. Momma took me to the vet and he gave me a shot to kill tape worms. Now those of you who know my momma are aware that she is not a very patient person. She was expecting me to stop licking immediately. Needless to say, that was not the case so she asked Dogster vet Dr. Eric Barchas, DVM, about it and he answered today in his blog. Thank you Dr. Barchas for taking the time to answer my mommas question.

I'm happy to say that I no longer have an itchy behind and it doesn't look like I will need a follow-up shot after all.
