• Hello, My boy Billy has been scratching a lot lately. I do not see any mites or anything. What should I do?

    Hi Tania,
    I recommend that you take Billy into see a veterinarian. There can be a few different causes for scratching including fleas, allergies, food allergies, microscopic skin mites, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the scratching and the treatment Billy needs after they have examined him.
