    Default Yet another vet visit

    Came home from work today and took Guinness out of the crate and when I pat the back of his head my hand was covered in blood. The whole back of his head was all stained red. Called the vet and they were nice enough to stay open for me (for a fee of course) so I didn't have to bring him to regional ER vet. The Dr said it was a hot spot and probably started small and he began to scratch all day in his crate and eventually the irritation spread all over. He was given a steroid shot which contained a mix of multiple steroids, the granadilla for pain and to help lessen the irritation and also 15 days of pregnazone. Hopefully he makes out ok and stops itching and this gets better. I love this dog more then anything but if its not one thing it's another with him and the vet. I'm just venting.

    Augh, so sorry you are going through this. This reminds me of when out of nowhere my new kitty developed conjunctivitis. Scared the crap right out of me... Hang in there and keep us updated?

    It's ok to vent, better to share than to keep it to yourself. Hope all that knock's it out of him. Bad year for hot spots all around

    Poor Guiness! I'm amazed how easily they get skin stuff and also how quickly it gets bad. Hope he gets better quickly!

    sorry to hear about the hotspot... darn allergies! You can clean it with Listerine to keep it dry and that will help clear it up too. did the vet shave the area?

    aw poor thing. ive been through several hot spots with sarah this summer where ive never had to deal with them before. the vet gave you meds and thats great. did they shave the area? you can use douxo pads on it if you have them and if you dont id get some they are wonderful, or if not hibiclenz can be gotten at the local drug store to wash it in. you can also put some hydrocortisone cream on the area as its probably itchy as it heals as sarahs was but with prednisone you may not need it. also have you been feeding guinness anything different. face neck and front torso hot spots usually are food related i believe. so are there any new treats or food or meds like heartworm medicine or such he is getting. there is a sticky in the health section on this very subject called hot spots the bad and the ugly of it. good luck with poor guinness
