Previous ear infections. Has been on repeated antibiotics for itchy face and other irritations. Clears but always comes back in one form or another.

First Visit Treatment
After speaking to client, they advised they clipped Geoffrey many months ago as he liked to swim in the pool and it was easier to dry him off with a clipped coat. I believe that Geoffrey doesn’t have any skin allergies. I believe his coat has been burnt by the chlorine and because he didn’t have his protective coating, the chlorine has absorbed into the skin and caused the above symptoms.
