It's always the way that when the vet shaves the area suddenly you see the problem in all its glory and its way worse than we thought!! She's getting some good treatment so it should heal up really quickly. Shaving when it gets bad is always the best thing as it allows the air to dry it up more quickly.

Hope she feels much better really soon

i just called the vet about the powder you suggested, because now that it is healing some, it seems to be itchy for her. It's been about 20 hrs since the vet visit yesterday.....The benadryl isn't relaxing her enough. So i wanted to see the difference between the powder you suggested and Gold Bond.....
thanks

I may be wrong but I believe you are only supposed to use the neo/pred/def when the spot is just beginning--1 to 3 days max. It's basically to stop them early in their tracks and prevent them from expanding like crazy. Fostermom may have better information on how to use.

Oh that looks so sore. Hope she is feeling better soon. They seem to get out of control so fast.

okee dokee. thanks. Yeah, i think thats like Gold Bond foot powder.. I called my vet but they haven't called back yet. I want to compare the two products, and if i should be using.. The vet said, air dry only, is best way, but since Molli-Sue is annoyed by it, she can easily scratch it raw again. i think i am going to tape up her foot, so her nails are covered.

Thank goodness it is healing. It looks like it really hurts. Havent ever heard of that powder from the vet, we always get the Genta spray and it works great and dries it out so fast.

That is a nasty hot spot, worst I've ever seen. Only one of my goldens ever had hot spots, and his were always pretty minor. Knock on wood. Hope Molli feels better soon.
