biting & itching back and tail area
My 2 year old male started biting and itching his back and tail area last week after I took him swimming. I ended up taking him to the e-vet and they said he was allergic to flea bites but that he didn't have any fleas on him at the time. They gave him a steroid shot and that stopped the biting and itching. I can tell the shot is wearing off because his appetite is returning to normal but this morning I saw him biting his tail area again. He is on heartworm medicine and I give the advantix monthly. Any ideas on what else could cause this? I'll take him back to the vet but was wondering what else it could be.
