    Thank You All So Much, You People are the Greatest, I Love All Of You, And So Does Elmo. I took Elmo to the Doctor Yesterday, his face is so much worse, I started crying and could not stop, every time I look at my boy his face is so infected I cry, I have never seen anything like this before on him. I did not take him to his regular Vet. it is about 1 1/2hours from home we went to the Vet where I take my other dogs. He is a really good Doctor. He gave Elmo a steroid shot and some Cephalexin pills to take every 12 hours, Prednisone 20mg. to take for 7 days, then 1/2 tablet every other day, Vet also gave Elmo a Bottle of Miconosol with Baytril to wipe his hot spots two to three times a day. I try to keep his face dry, but with all the blood coming out of the sores it is so hard, I feel so sorry for My Precious Boy. I will keep all of you updated as we go along this horrible infection. Again Love All Of You. And We Thank You All For the Advise and For Caring, You Are Wonderful People.

    Sending prayers and love to Elmo so he heals up quick.

    Susan did anything change in his diet or the house? This seems like it could possibly be an extreme allergic reaction to something ... ?

    Christine, Nothing has changed in his food, his diet, I am using the same thing on floors and clothes. This Hot Spot is Awful. Thank You For Caring about My Elmo.

    -100_0937-jpg-100_0938-jpg-100_0939-jpgThis is Elmo after 2 days of Medicine, it still looks so bad, but the bleeding has almost stopped. I will for sure know what to expect if there is a next time my Elmo has this, which I Pray he never does, I am going to buy the Vetericyn Gel to keep on hand. Thank You all so Much, I Love You All and Your Fur Babies. Susan and Elmo

    Elmo kept his eyes shut, after I put the Med. on him.

    Hurts my heart to see him like that.... Sweet boy.

    I'm surprised the vet did not shave the large one .... Fur traps dirt and moisture which feeds the spot. Air and keeping it dry helps the healing process. If you can, you might want to do so

    Give Elmo some big hugs and kisses

    Hot spots, once recognized and treatment has begun, always continue to look bad and will even look worse as they heal. Do not worry, he's on the mend. Formation of scabs is simply part of the healing process...and although it looks terrible he likely feels no discomfort from it.

    Again, because this is so localized on his face I'm thinking that shampoo/soap may have set things in motion. Had he had a bath within the past few days or a week maybe? We've had this happen on occasion because the bullies simply do not mind getting their faces lathered up but rinsing thoroughly can be a real struggle. If not, then something else really lit him up...it would be nice to figure out exactly what that trigger was.
    BTW, Elmo is quite a handsome boy...he'll be looking his best soon enough.
