      Hi. Please read through the FAQ questions and answers. As for his ears, I hope it’s not from ear mites so just keep a watch on it or else apply some gentle oil to help them heal. As for potty training, please read through the questions as there are many, and many answers on the FAQ page! You need to be consistent and either offer a litter box or find a place outside where he can safely go.

          For his skin, try some baby cocoa butter or baby lotion/oil. Also, if you open up one capsule of flax seed oil per day onto his food, it will help the dry skin more longterm. Try to make both a ritual and you should see improvement!
