  • Hot Spots are truly painful for dogs.
  • These self traumatic skin lesions create lot of
    trouble for the dog. Often termed as moist eczema
    or summer sores, these red patches on the skin
    prove very painful for dogs.
  • In addition, dogs tend to lick, chew and scratch
    these areas making the sores turn into wounds.
  • They start off from a small sore caused due to
    allergy, insect bite, bacterial infection etc.
    Ending up into deep bloody patches of flesh,
    these skin lesions demand immediate attention
    from pet parents.

  • Let us Check out Causes for Hot Spots in Dogs
  • An unhealthy skin condition is the first reason
    for development of hop spots in dogs.
  • If your pet is ungroomed and has filthy skin
    then he is susceptible to skin infections of all
    kinds.
  • The end result may be patchy skin with or
    without discharge.
  • Allergic reactions are another prominent reason.
    It could be due to flea or insect bites, atopy or
    food.
  • Fleabites may turn into sores which further
    degrade due to chewing and licking by the pet.

5
  • Atopy is a term used when dogs develop allergies
    due to environmental allergens. Accounting for
    70 to 90 of hot spots in dogs, this occurs if
    the pet gets wet in contaminated water and other
    reasons.
  • Food allergies are another cause of skin lesions
    in dogs. Having a direct effect on the pets
    food, low quality food can be actually very
    harmful for dogs.
  • Other reasons for hot spots in dogs are anal
    infection, clipping or grooming, pyoderma, drug
    reactions, autoimmune disease, injection site
    reaction etc. Have a word with your vet about the
    reasons and how to treat and prevent them.

  • How to Treat Hot Spots in Dogs?
  • Treating hot spots can be a tough task. Its
    important to follow a vets advice and perform
    initial treatment under his supervision.
  • For small spots that can be treated at home, you
    need to first cut the fur around the spot. Gently
    wipe it with benzyol peroxide or benzalkonium
    chloride, which are non irritant skin cleansing
    solutions for dogs. Pat the spot dry and apply
    betadine that has drying and healing properties.
  • Use an Seresto collar to prevent the pet from
    licking, chewing or further damaging the wound.
  • If infection seem deeper into the skin then
    going to the vet is the only alternative.
  • The pet may need antibiotics and painkillers to
    bare the pain. Your vet may also prescribe
    antihistamines to control itching.

  • What are the Best Ways to Prevent Hop Spots in
    Dogs?
  • Groom the pet on a regular basis. Hygiene plays
    a vital role in keeping away skin infections and
    diseases in dogs.
  • In summers, clip your pets hair to a shorter
    length. This is important for those pets that
    have long fur with dense undercoat as these areas
    develop germ and bacterial infections.
  • Keep fleas away from your pooch. Adhere to a
    flea control program that suits your pet. Or,
    choose flea treatments recommended by your vet.
  • Stress is another factor that deteriorates your
    pets skin. So, maintain a stress free
    environment around your pet.
  • Provide good quality food to keep the pets skin
    and coat healthy. Ask your vet for dietary
    supplements that provide essential fatty acids to
    dogs.

8
  • To sum up, hot spots in dogs can be prevented
    with some good knowledge about the actual problem
    and the pets sensitivities.
  • If the skin problem occurs then taking proper
    advice from the vet will help you deal with the
    situation.
  • But then prevention is far better than cure.
  • So, talk to your vet about the precautions and
    follow them to keep your pet healthy and happy
    with flawless skin and coat.
