    Default This can't be seasonal allergies.

    A few weeks ago I took Lily to the vet because she had a small blad spot on her lower back.The vet said it was seasonal allergies and gave us Clavamox. Well the spot is still there and the skin looks red now where it did not before. I've put HP on it, Vit E and Douxo but nothing seems to be working. I am going to call the vet in the am. I'm wondering if she could have Demodex.
    Is there anything else I should try?

    Any thougths??

    It's dry. Not moist at all. I didn't think it was a hot spot.
    She is not trying to scratch at it either.

    I don't think it's itchy. She doesn't try to scratch it...
    What you said sounds just like what she has now.
    It's red and a little scaly or flanky...
    I'm thinking it might be demodex to. Calling the vet right now!

    No the vet that we saw said he was certain it was just seasonal allergies and nothing more.
    Oh I hope I see him again today when I bring her back in!
