Our dog has several hot spots. Our vet gave her a steroid shot and prescribed a topical antibiotic spray to help heal the spots. Is there anything that we can do for our dog to prevent the hot spots to begin with? She is a 7 yr old, mostly indoor shepard/husky mix.
Hots spots usually result from a combination of the heat and any type of skin irritation. First, I would make sure your pet is on a flea and tick preventative. Second, you can use derm-caps to help keep the skin and coat healthy. Third, once you see a hot spot have it treated asap. Hot spots worsen quickly. vetcare
