    It's looking so much better and once healed, you'll never know,
    other than your trauma at seeing Otis like this ;(

    Sending y'all BIG HUGS as well as continued love & prayer.

    Poor Elmo! At least it sounds like he is on the mend and hopefully he will continue to improve! I am glad you got him to the vet and got him some stronger meds. It is crazy how fast the hot spots can spread. Sending positive thoughts that Elmo continues to get better and is back to himself soon!
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Susan wants when my girl Yuna got a bee sting the same exact thing happened to her, so I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't get stung by something. what the vet prescribed sounds like the perfect way to get him back on track and he is going to be feeling very good very soon! Give him kissies from me!

    Poor baby! Hope he heals up in no time, I hate hotspots, Betty has had a couple on her neck before and they seemed to appear out of nowhere!

    Yes, it does seem that hotspots do appear out of nowhere, and sounds like Elmo is starting to heal. So glad he went to the vet. If there is a next time-zap it right away! Sorry this has happened-but glad he is on the mend-he is too handsome to have uglies on him!

    Christine, I did try to shave the side of his face, Elmo goes nuts when he hears the sound of the groomer coming towards him. He is on Prednisone, but he is itching really bad, what can I do about his itching these sores? Thank You All So Much.

    Susan, if the itching keeps up then you may have to put a cone on him.

    Your Vet should have shaved those spots especially that large one on the
    side of his face.

    Prayers & love sent your way <3

    Understood, but your vet really should have done this for you, and if he does not leave it alone, you should get him a cone (one of the soft ones, not the plastic). Do you have a groomer nearby that can shave it for you, if not... I would call the vet office and ask that they do it --- the fur being there is not good for the healing process.

    Great idea! If Elmo continues trying to scratch then call Vet & ask
    to bring him in for shaving them, they let them do things to them much easier.
    Letting air get to them really helps in their healing. You might buy pure aloe gel
    & purified water and make a spray.

    I cannot stress the importance of getting those affected areas shaved. They need to dry out and the crusty hair is preventing that from happening. And I emphatically agree with others that your VET should have done that!..it's disappointing that they failed to do so.
