• Finley is having trouble jumping. This just started today. He is normally very peppy. Running seems to be okay, but he has lost strength in his arms and cannot up up to the sofa. Other exacerbated issues: itchy skin, scratching more than usual and causing bleeding in spots; his bark is a croak. We switched to a Seresto Collar instead of the liquid a month or so ago. I've removed the collar in case that is the problem

    Hi Mary,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. The not wanting to jump along with the skin issues and voice change is concerning. There can be a few different causes for these symptoms which your vet can discuss with you after they have examined him. The treatment that he needs will depend on the severity and underlying cause of his symptoms.
