    Default What is this?

    I bathed Benson this morning and noticed this red circle maybe bite? How can I treat this? He seems perfectly fine but it looks moist and don't want it to get infected.

    Hi, I'm not sure what that could be, but I don't think it looks like a bug bite, it looks more like it could be the start of a hot spot. If its an infection, I would clean it and then apply some Polysporin and keep an eye on it. If it doesn't clear up, I would have the vet take a look at it. It looks kind of weepy or pus filled, hopefully it's not infected, but the Polysporin would help with this. I hope it's nothing serious and clears up quick. Please keep us posted. If it is a hot spot, shave the area, clean it with Betadine on a gauze, and keep it dry. Keep an eye on it to make sure it's not spreading, and if it is have the vet look at it.

    Agree, it does look like a small hotspot.

    Could it be from his harness, if he wears one?

    @2BullyMama Well he wears it when he goes for walks but take it off right away when we're done. Never had a problem before. I have my kids with me and can't go to the store until later. But can I use neosporin? Wound is dry today so this must've happen yesterday or the day before.

    sure, just to keep it clean.... but it is better to get it to dry up so use what Monica suggested.
