    Just a little info! My daughter has a huge (114 lbs) golden retriever. He currently has an e collar on because he has a huge hotspot under his tail! His was caused by a flea! He is very sensitive to fleas and then he kept chomping until it was huge! Vet cleaned it..put him on antibiotics and now it just has to heal! Soooo..other dogs have "issues" too!

    LMAO Paisley has a "German Shepherd" issue going on. Fortunately, it is usually much further advanced for the Sheps, because it's under their tail and fur, and the Sheps can reach it, and make it worse.. Similar to your daughters retriever. Luckily for Paisley, she can't reach her butt, has no tail, and super short fur, so we caught it early

    Sounds to me like there was a reaction to the e collar. This happened to me as well, up under the neck from moisture (like dripping from the water bowl), in combination with the plastic from the collar. The collar also folds the turkey neck creating a new place for bacteria to grow.

    Hot spots that occur from food generally show up behind the ears and neck, usually anyway.

    For the tear stains, I have been having much success with Malacetic Ultra. I would not use it daily however, it seems very strong! In between I also use witch hazel.

    So you use cotton balls.....wipe it, dry it and leave it nothing else huh? I have notice Coops face pinking up so I am thinking of switching to fromm food also. Have you changed foods at all and did it make a difference?

    @acarabias Thanks for the link!!

    @cowsmom-Actually I purchased a diffrent bag of fromm going from duck n sweet potato to pork n apple sauce. He actually loved it today ate every single kibble.

    @desertskybulldogs-Where do you get Malacetic Ultra at?

    @Cooper11- What food is your bulldog currently on?

    I just want to thank everyone for all the advice Wrigleys hot spot seemed to closed up and is dry, I have left the collar off and planned on it for awhile. He is fully transitioned to his new food FROMM and couldnt much happier to see him have great food. He smells better, and just happy overall
