    Default Hotspot on the paw ?

    Yep, first for me! of all the hotspots I have experienced with my babies and others in and around my life, this is the first time I have seen one on a paw!

    Lambeau.... caught it on day one so it is almost gone, but here is a picture of it the day I noticed it. It is about 3 days in now and all crusty and hard, so it is 'dying'... peroxide and some antibiotic powder i had left from Banks' tail issues

    and then, there is Lambeau soaking up the A/C - as soon as he hears it kick on, he runs over and lays on the vent

    @2BullyMama Glad to hear you've given it "the cure"! My dogs would probably keep licking it! Lambeau has the right idea,sucking up the A/C!!

    It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    Awe. Lamby. Yah, Tyson has had them on his paw before. Who knows what the heck causes them. I keep him clean, wipe him down, etc. And he'll still get them. Ugh. Right now I think he's developing a cyst in between, I'm trying to handle it before it gets bad. So I've been soaking it in epsom, and applying antibiotic ointment. Glad you caught it early! He doesn't seemed phased by it at all. LOL

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I have no idea and I have been trying like all heck to figure it out. The picture is after I shaved it down and cleaned it once, but it was nasty.... raw and lots of yellow puss. I wipe his paws when we come in and nothing in diet has changed --

    Knock on wood, I have never had a dog experience a hotspot before! Poor little guy! I am glad you caught it.
