Oops, I Did it Again....

I spoke too soon yesterday....last night I was a bit restless & itchy, so I deceided to bite & lick a new hotspot into my rump...in a couple areas, actually. The biggest area is about 2 inches by 3 inches & boy, is it driving me crazy. Its driving my mom crazy too. Not a fun morning so far, cuz out came the diluted solution of hydrogen peroxide, the gentocin spray & the sissors (no worries, all procedures cleared by my vet). So now I have to get lathered up again & have a foamy bath with the Pyoben Shampoo & then maybe some Epi-Soothe & then get me dry completey using the hair blower...hate that thing. Oh...when you think it can't get any worse, she's threatened the cone-collar on me...but I'm hoping she'll look into some alternatives...cuz those things are embarassing... But its really not my fault....its kind of hot & sticky here & I'm shedding my thick (half) newfie fuzzy undercoat....& I'm just uncomfortable..... *sigh* .....I miss winter.
Love & Licks,

Randi

You poor thing! I miss winter, too. It's too darn hot! We're lucky we don't get hotspotables. They sound awful.

Hi, Randi
That hot spots don't sound very good. I hope you get better soon. The cone is not fun but maybe it will help!
Take care

I'm sure you've had lots of advice, but have you tried changing your diet? You may be allergic to something you are eating. I was, and my Momma switched my food several times till we found something that doesn't make the hot spots happen. Now I feel MUCH better!
Hope you feel better soon.
Whoofs,
Eddie

Hey Randi, Eva here. Sorry to here that your hot spot is flaring up again. We wish it was winter, too. If you want to see me in my storm shirt, go to the June 22 post on our blog. It helps me feel more secure because it is tight around me. Or so the humans say. It does seema to help, though. Belly Rubs, Eva

Not the cone collar!! Mom threatens me with that because I chew my feet. I've never had a hot spot...sorry you're so itchy!

Hot spots are not nice. I used to get them until mom put me on a raw diet.

I like to pull my own fur out.

I'm not too keen on the whole grooming lark.

But I do make a few bitey marks and then mistress puts some yellow stuff on it. Tastes vile.

I think you're getting a hard time at the moment pal.
Hang on in there.
