My golden retriever has had a small sore on top of her head for about two weeks which she keeps itching. Our vet gave us a topical spray (Dermacool) to keep her from itching it. It seems to be working to prevent the itchiness. However, I noticed today she is infested with fleas around her head and ears. Could the fleas be attracted to her sore? What is the best treatment for this problem? Thanks!
Yes, the fleas may be the reason for the sore. I recommend advantage for the fleas. A good flea bath will help until you can get the advantage. vetcare
