I have an aussie who breaks out in these nasty 'sores', I wouldn't catagorize them as hot spots, he gets itchy in a spot, becomes raw, nasty, *****, oozy..he only gets them certain times of the year, like now I see possibly one starting..
I clip the area around the sore, and apply Vetericyn sometimes 3 times a day..When they scab over, the scab is like "tar", (road tar),,if I pick it off the skin underneath is clean and new..
My vets have tried all kinds of 'stuff' on him, it doesn't work..What I do above seems to..At one point I put him on Purina (and I dont like purina), Sensitive skin/stomache, it's salmon based but has a high fat content, he did pork on the pounds even tho he is an active dog, but his skin and coat were gorgeous..
Just thought I'd share my story, I like the vetericyn and use it for EVERYTHING and ANYTHING.
