    DefaultHot spot question (Frankie)

    He's got one on his back foot, I assume it's from tredging around in the flood waters the last couple of weeks. I have an all natural hot spot spray that I've been using and it seems to soothe. He's still been occasionally licking it, so I just put gauze and tape over the spot. Is that OK to do? Or does it need to "breathe" to heal?

    I would put a cone collar or the like on him so he can't get to it because it'll heel a lot faster if it gets air. Cephalexin also helps speed up the process.

    What I've done for Cooper's hot spots is, I shave the area and then spray with hot spot cortizone spray that I purchased at Walmart. The next day, the spot is cleared up.

    Hot spots can get big really fast. They are generally wet, oozy, inflamed sores that seem to appear out of nowhere and grow quickly. Are you sure it's a hot spot, or is it a lick granuloma (has he been licking the area?) Hot spots can occur anywhere but tend to happen on the neck/body more so than the feet. Just saying. I'd go see your vet. I forget with the spray is my vet gave me last time Ruger had a hotspot, but it was a god-send it dried it up really fast.
