What are hot spots?
Also known as Summer Sores or Moist Dermatitis, hot spots are red and inflamed areas of irritation on your dog’s skin. They can be caused by a number of things such as an allergic reaction, insect bites, poor grooming and ear or skin infections, but are usually made worse from repetitive licking, biting and scratching in the area. When this happens, bacteria can get in and a hot spot develops. As bacteria thrives in hot and moist environments, your dog is more likely to get hot spots when spending time out in the rain, after swimming or in humid weather. If your dog is not properly groomed and has tangled and matted fur, this can also make hot spots worse.
So how can you deal with hot spots on your dog? If it is serious, then a visit to your vet may help. You can also care for them at home by keeping the area clean by carefully washing and using products that can help to protect the area from bacteria. Make sure to avoid harsh chemicals when dealing with hot spots as this can hurt your furry friend and cause them pain. Instead, try something natural that works to protect as well as soothe the area to speed up their natural healing processes.
