Kero won't stop scratching and biting at himself, and he's making himself really sore again. I'm getting flea shampoo and stuff to treat him just to make sure it's not just something as simple as the flea stuff we usually use not being enough right now, but if that doesn't do the trick then we'll have to take him back to the vet. It could be the start of one of the many skin problems Westies are known for; his groomer said she thought so when she came to groom him at the start of December. He's actually done well to get to nine years old without having them. But I want to try some extra flea treatment first. I hate having to take him to the vet, especially with how much he hates it. I don't blame him for hating it though; I'm not a big fan of being pulled about by doctors myself! To be honest, I should have taken him sooner, but I was hoping after we bathed him, and then he had another bath with his groomer, it would stop him biting and scratching at himself, and get rid of his sores. I thought it might have helped; it seemed to at first, but it's not helping enough, so - as I said - I'm going to try some extra flea treatment, and failing that he's going to have to go to the vet.
