Hot Spot and Vetrycin?

Hiya all

Well Hex has another Hot spot
I bought some Vetrycin spray recently seeing as it was highly recommended on here.
Just wondering how often do you guys apply it?

Cheers

I think you can use the coconut oil on that if I'm not mistaken. I know my cat has gotten a couple ouchies, with fur missing and all and I used the coconut oil on him and he healed rather quickly. I'm sure someone with more experience with these things will post shortly

You want the spot to dry out and also make sure the dog can't lick it. I can't use coconut oil because my dogs *love* it and would just lick it (so I can only use it for wounds on the face). Usually I gently wash the hotspot with soapy warm water and spray Vetericyn, but then after that I pretty much leave it alone. I find the more I try to treat it, the more attention I draw to it and my dog is more likely to like it. Sometimes I apply Neo-Predef powder (antibacterial). Also make sure to cut and shave the hair around the spot so it doesn't get gumped into the wound.

I have found the opposite, but do agree you want to try and dry it out and keep the hair shaved around it

But of course I'm using it on big nasty fungus type sores that my male aussie is prone to get during certain times of the year..
