Q. Beagle/Terrier mix
Profusely itching/biting. To the point of making him bleed. Weve coned him for now, but he wont stop. He doesnt have flea at all

Answered By

A. Your dog probably has an allergic reaction on his skin that makes him scratch/bite til it bleeds. The main reason for that condition is known that are flea bites even if you are not able to find any flea on him. It needs desperately to go to the vets that will prescribe him medication to stop the itchiness and probably also antibiotics. You need to use flea treatment every 4 weeks, I would recommend you spot on Advocate.
