    You can spray him with some Lanacain like I did with Tankers hot spot or use some cortisone cream. Oh and putting socks on his feet will help too

    Glad he is getting better

    here are the pics it was getting better but he scratched it any help would be appreaciated


    Here's my advice , keep him out of any heat for more than a potty break, give him a bath with a mix of Original Dawn, (blue) and hydrogen peroxide mixed together in a t-cup , rinse really good, this should dry things out and not irritate. keep on Benedryl 2 tablets every 6 hours, no more than 3 times a day. wrap up in some meat or peanut butter, 1 vitamin C and 1 Zinc tablet given at meal time once a day. After day two, apply hydrogen peroxide with cotton ball really good. It will turn white from cooking out the infection or hot spot. Do this once a day until gone. Works for us

    Ouch that does not look comfortable at all, I think you have some great advise from Sherry on this one. If he will tolerate a t-shirt I would do that too so he can't scratch it more.

    i missed this but i hope it is healing up now. hot spots as they heal will itch alot as i found out with sarah. give benadryl and put hydrocorisone on it for the itching. it only itches for a couple days then it stops as it heals. you can also use hibiclenz on it but sherry has you covered. there is a sticky at the top of this section called hotspots the bad and the ugly of it which has alot of info in it about them.
