    Default Is this a hot spot

    Hopefully this works https://m.facebook.com/home.php?refi...00002240019007

    if that link worked I found that on her early this morning and while scratching her belly I actually pulled a scab off n found it what can I clean it with (I have witch hazel, peroxide, rubbing alcohol, and saline.) I know to keep it good n dry where it is she can not reach which is good. Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated thanks!!!!!

    Clean it up with some HP and then put a little Neosporin or similar product on it. Doesnt look too bad at this point. I hope that takes care of it.

    It looks like a staph infection, dry that area up and watch for other's to show up, keep on top of them they can spread fast. Moving around the body as new scabs appear.

    I made her a vet appointment tomorrow to get it cultured it was very dry n scabby this morning but in the early mornings she throws herself on my arm so I will cuddle her n rub her belly n I was scratching n pulled the scab off so I cut all the fur around it to expose it cleaned it up with peroxide n put some neosporin on it. There was a little bit of puss no blood and it wasn't very wet!!! I told her vet what everyone said and she said to bring her in for a culture and we'd probably get antibiotics!!!! Now the hunt begins what is she allergic to

    Looks like it could be staff or the beginning of mange, the vet skin scrape will give you an answer right away. @JeannieCO I put the picture from FB below

    Thank you for posting the picture. I'm leaning more towards staph she's been having a lot of food allergies lately n when I first noticed it it was a crusty scab she's not trying to itch it n slept through me cleaning it lol so idk lol but if I'm not 100% sure what's going on n how to fix it it's right to the vet for her!!!!!
