Just got back from the vet. Bear will survive, they're not sure what he has it's either Bacterial skin infection or he's developed an allergy to something. so $300 later I have a shampoo and an antibiotic to treat something that we're not sure what it is. Like I don't have enough medical problems in this household and now the poor dog has some weird thing that they have no idea what it is. Wish me and Bear luck!!
