Alergic reaction

Hi guys,

I would like to get some input here and "take advantage" of your knowledge/expertise.

Pixie got 2 hot spots on her back, that got a bit nasty since she kept linking and bittig them. We went to the vet who gave us a cream for it and it is healing well now.

I am a bit worry about the reason why this happened and trying to figure it out.

3 days before I applied advantix (for the ticks and fleas) and I think that the spots are in the same places! Now, she used advantix before (4 or 5 times) and never got a reaction. So the vet is not very sure this would be it. He asked me to put hald of the tube in a localised spot and to keep an eye on it.

We also changed her food around a month a go (she likes this one more and her fur is more shinning). Since this was some time ago I dont think it is the cause, but I have never seen a food alergy reaction. Could it be?

Thank you for your help and advices

My girlfriend's dogs had a bad reaction to a flea treatment, I'm not sure what brand. Her German shepherd mix got oozing hot spots and then most of his fur fell out. The vet gave him a steroid I think and she had to bathe him in an oatmeal bathe every week to soothe his skin.

Hot Spots are not necessarilly due to allergies. There are numerous things that can cause a hot spot to start. Dog Hot Spots Treatments, Symptoms, Causes

The oily sensation the dog feels when you apply the topical may in itself be enough for the dog to start the scratch and itch cycle.

It is true that she doesnt like it AT ALL when I put the advantix on her!!!

SO my guess is that she started to scratch it once she felt it and then it never stoped!!! She is a lot better now (the vet prescribed a cortisone cream and pills and an antiflamatory). I will test the advantix to make sure that it was not it!

Thank you for your comments
