Glad I have found this forum since I need an advice regarding hot spots. My boy is almost 9 years old and he always had hot spots (rear), once or twice a year, however this year (2013) he has one hot spot after another e.g. one hot spot healed another starts. Here are current pictures:
Hot spot on the right side is healed already but on the left side is new. So me and my vet decided to go with 4 weeks of antibiotics to see if we can stop hot spots but it doesn't seem working. I'm feeding him Orijen Six Fish for 7 years already, BTW.
I will be glad to hear any ideas how to prevent hot spots since I feel that I'm chasing the tail. Thank you in advance.
