Has been off of oxygen since April. All of that said, he is struggling with weather changes and the cold and flu season. A tiny cold leads to wheezing and bronchiolitis almost every time. My doc...

BUT, she grooms herself BALD. Not pretty. We thought... fleas! So we did three months of the Advantix thing... honestly no signs of fleas anywhere in our house, or even on the cat. (She is strictly an indoor cat). I bought her fancy Hill's Science Diet for Sensitive Skin food and kept her on it for over a month. No improvement. She just cried and cried at her...
