A hot spot is a spot on their body, usually near the tail. This typically occurs due to fleas. If this occurs, do the following to treat them:
- Give them a flea and tick bath
- Trim the hair from around the area that is infected
- Spray some Vetericyn on the spot
You can find Vetericyn at any major pet or agriculture store. Vetericyn is used for wounds and skin care and will help heal the hot spot. A hot spot is also a sign that your flea and tick medicine isn’t working. I recommend contacting your vet or changing your flea and tick medicine. Also, if the hot spots don’t clear after treating with Vetericyn, please contact your vet for further treatment.
