Pepper, a 3 yo FS DSH, presents to you on a busy Friday afternoon for a recent history of skin irritation and licking. Pepper is an indoor/outdoor cat, and she is up-to-date on FVRCP, Rabies, and FeLV vaccines.
Not much is known about Pepper’s medical history; she was adopted from an animal shelter approximately six months earlier after being found as a stray. Pepper’s owner reports that she tries to give Revolution® monthly, though she occasionally forgets to give it. Her last dose of Revolution was administered “a little over a month ago.”
Pepper is a friendly, affectionate cat. Her BCS is 5/9, her mucous membranes are pink and moist, her capillary refill time is < 2 seconds, and she is bright, alert, and responsive.
