    Question. I have an appointment set up for this on Saturday. If this treatment is working, should I still take her in to the vet? Of course I want her seen but the bully vet is almost an hour away and it's supposed to be mid 90s on Saturday. I have AC in the car of course but not sure how cool it stays in the back. My one concern would be that she needs antibiotics. Thoughts here? Do you all always take your doggies to the vet for hot spots or just home treat?

    If you start to notice improvement no need to go in. Generally you should be able to treat at home, but if it gets worse or you notice no improvement then it might need something stronger like Animax (from vet) I've never had to take him in for a hot spot, took him once for staph bc it was out of control and I couldn't heal it, so he was given meds & ointment for that.

    It's looking a bit better this morning, but there's some crustiness developing. Not sure if it's just the ooziness matting on her fur, or could it be yeast?

    Here's a pic:

    They look worse before better--- if you can shave the area--- fur traps dirt and moisture which prolongs healing

    This is true, they tend to seem to be getting worse then all the sudden start clearing up. This pic looks WAY better than that first initial one that was super red and inflamed. If she'll allow you to shave it like Christine said, will speed up healing

    You two have been so helpful! I'll see if I can shave the affected areas. She's pretty easy going so I think I can make it happen. Thanks so so much.
