Hot Spot 'Dogs' - 'Dogs'


 

Hot spot dog treatment

A hot spot describes a superficial, weeping inflammation of the skin. It could be a foul smelling wound. In medical jargon it is called "pyotraumatic dermatitis".

It is a common skin condition that can affect all dogs, but especially long-haired and thick-haired breeds.

Hot spots seem to be more common in the warmer months. It is often caused by flea bites. Due to the increased itching, the superficial wound quickly becomes infected with bacteria and becomes inflamed from the constant licking.

Even minor injuries can create a hot spot if the dog licks, scratches, or bites the wound.


A hot spot typically shows up as an elongated or round red, superficial skin inflammation that can flare up within a few hours.

Owners often recognize the micro-injuries caused by the long and thick hair too late, which can lead to the formation of an unpleasant smelling wound. If this comes into contact with the adjacent hair, sticky areas can form. The wound edges of the inflammation must be clearly demarcated from the surrounding healthy skin areas.

Since hot spots cause severe itching in dogs, licking the wounds creates a vicious circle. Hot spots keep flaring up despite the fact that they are beginning to heal.
The wound edges of the inflammation must be clearly demarcated from the surrounding healthy areas of skin.

If the inflamed skin areas are not treated in the long term, very large and painful foci of inflammation can develop. In rare cases, deep skin inflammation can occur, which increases the risk of bacterial blood poisoning.

The external characteristics of hot spots make them relatively easy for the veterinarian to spot.

Usually, hot spots have a habit of recurring after initial recovery and treatment is usually difficult. Therefore, treatment with the usual products is a long-term affair (up to three weeks) and should be carried out regularly (at least every other day). With Vetdrop we have made the experience that you have to treat a maximum of 2 times a day and after 4-5 days the hotspot is already on the mend. We haven't had any relapses so far.
