Default Facial Hot Spot (graphic pics)

Poor Moses got the side of his face shaved today. The hot spot was the size of a quarter yesterday and within 24 hours exploded into what you see below. I couldn't get into the vet yesterday. I've never seen one explode like that so quickly though I've heard of it.

He got a steriod shot, is on antibotics and gets Neo Predef put on it 2x day and lots of extra TLC.

Oh poor Moses! (hugs) He looks so miserable. Rocky had one like that once and I felt like such a bad dog mom!

I know I feel terrible for him! I tried to get him in yesterday with it quarter size as I thought it was going to need treatment but wow was I shocked at what happend overnight!

If I can find a canine version of Phatom of the Opera, I think he has a shot at the lead!

Good greif!! I had no idea they could get that bad. You think the vet could have worked him in or something.

It wasn't that bad yesterday, quarter size. I've had dogs with them before and never had one explode like that so from my past experience taking in today would have been a non issue. Little did I know what all would go on during the night!

Something ususally starts it....bee sting, fly bite, flea bite, injury or allergies which starts the dog scratching it and it becomes more inflammed. In all my years of dog experience I've been fortunate to not have too many of these but when I have it's always taken a trip to the vet for a steriod shot to get rid of it.
