    Try using some hydrocortisone creme on it first, that might do the trick.

    hives are not sores. i would def keep an eye on it as there is redness going down the leg. the others gave good ideas on what to put on it so i will not add to that but if not better in a few days i would think a vet trip is in order to make sure all is ok. i would not think it contagous either. hang in there hon.

    Those look like the hives Stig used to get. They look innocent at first, but then look like sores after a while. The vet gave him some antibiotics to prevent infection. Taking benadryl is good advice. Stig's used to come and go so hopefully Miila's will to. Are they bumpy or flat?

    @cali~jenn, it does look alot like what Vegas had and I was freaking out it was staph, I watched the spots closely and put cortizone cream on them, with in 3 days they dried up and just went away, they never bothered him at all, no itching and I could touch them and we would not even flinch. I never did know what it was, but glad they went away. That was a couple months ago and they have never came back thank god! How are they looking today??

    @savemejeebus I would say they are mostly flat. Where her leg is red like a rash I could see it raised just slightly but mostly it is flat and she has no reaction to it either @KMARINO. I can touch and she could care less, well actually she does care since it is her belly and leg area, she just waits for more scratches. haha It might be itching her. She has done the boot scoot every once in a while since we got her. Had her anals expressed thinking that was the reason and didnt help. Her poo looks ok so I am not worried about worms, assuming I would see them if they were there. Her scoot doesnt look like a bootie drag as much as she is trying to get at something so this is why I think it must itchy and this is the cause maybe? No idea how it looks now cuz all the 4 leggers are still in bed with daddy. I dont rate very high this morning I guess. Her sore on her neck was looking much better yesterday tho. Still big but had cleaned with peroxide and then yesterday I put aquaphor on it since it is so thick and easy to gob up on there. That seemed to make it look much better and light pink like it was healing up. Will have to look at her carefully when she wakes and I will report back. Hadnt done the cortizone cream yet since I just saw that this morning. I will load her up and report back tho. Hopefully it goes away as randomly as it came on, very odd. Thanks for all your guys input!

    Doesn't look like MRSA. Norms was crusty and started from a bite wound. How does it look today?
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    I am thankful to hear it isnt the same. Well it looks the same but not worse so thats good maybe? Just started this morning with the hydracortizone cream so hoping that helps a lot by tomorrow maybe.

    @cali~jenn I hope it's getting better! With the booty scooting, she could need her tail pocket cleaned. Sam started booty scooting when he was like 7 months. Got his anal gland expressed thinking it would help but it didn't. So back to the vet and thats when they told me he needed to have his tail pocket cleaned regularly. All I do is use this waterless shampoo (specifically for animals) sprayed on a paper towel, wipe under the tail followed with mal-a-ket wipes. I know you use mal-a-ket wipes already and you could use baby wipes instead of the waterless shampoo. As long as I do that once or twice a week there is no booty scooting

    hmmm she doesnt have a pocket since she has a tail, or so i think. Now that I try to look she is hiding it from me. Her tail is strong so I cant force a peek. haha
