It has been a bad year for fleas. Personally, I would not only use antibiotics, but prednisone as well.. you need to break the cycle....

Food allergies are extremely uncommon and typically take 2-3 months to determine after dogs have been fed an exclusive hypoallergenic diet....

Has everything healed up? What did you decide about going to the vet?

Just checking in, hope things are clearing up.
Lance had a hot spot on his cheek this summer and we tried it all, listerine, gold bond, finally I broke out the NU STOCK and put that on, he left it alone and was getting smaller, but you know, I was torn about taking him to the dog swim with that spot, and after he had gone, I re-coated with NU STOCK once,and the spot cleared up completely in about a day.
I would say we battled it about a month.
Hope your baby is better.


The Angels...Lance & Sierra... run free babies. I'll see you again.

Yup, she's doing fine, all healed up, just waiting for her hair to grow back. I did end up taking her to the vet, who gave me, steroid spray, antibiotics, medicated shampoo, and I already had prednisone so she told me to continue with that. I have not touched the shampoo or the spray. I'm pretty sure that the prednisone and the antibiotics did just fine. She also told me not to use the Listerine, but that honestly worked better than anything, so I will continue to keep it around.

Gen One spray and oral Temeril P is the way I go with hotspots, and right away. If they are bad or if it is a show dog who cannot be shaved, add Simplecif antibiotic. My dogs have only had a few in about 25 years, but I still dread that look and smell.
