-------------- He’s only shedding on and around his legs. I had to take him to the vet because he was keeping one eye closed turns out he had Pseudomona and Staph bacteria in his eye and has been on meds for it. Its oral so to ive it to him I have to grab him from the top and give it to him when he opens his mouth.. its stressful for both him and I. hes doing much better but now he’s shedding only around his legs. Should I be worried? Could it be from the stress of the treatment?
