WVGSD Sabra had one of those spots on each front leg this summer and fall. I just bathed her and made sure that her flea and tick preventative was up to date. The spots are gone now.

GatorBytes Can't really see anything from the pic...could have nicked it on something, could be a hot spot on the way or just an itch he aggrevated...the CO topically will help heal it...if you think he may be having a reaction to the CO, then don't use until it's healed, then try again. I doubt that 2 days of use is going to start a herx reaction (when toxins are eliminated and symptoms get worse before they get better - also called a healing crisis).

Whatever you choose to put on to heal it...what I found works great to keep from licking it off is to take a childs knee high tube sock (like for little girls), use white cotton ones...cut the toe off...slide your hand in the top end of sock and bunch it up, cup the paw and dew claw and just slide the tube sock up the leg....the heal of the sock will fit nicely over the elbow and the elastic part shouldn't be too tight...then distract for awhile.

Should I wrap it?

Any Idea What This Is?

I noticed this on Wolfie's leg 2 days ago. I had given him a bath the day before and didn't notice it. It looks like it could be a hot spot but when I looked up hot spots online, all the sites say that hot spots turn very red and get pus within a few hours. This spot hasn't changed ay all. Is it possible that he could have scraped himself on the shower door track or climbing on his log pile outside? Would it look like this if that's the case? Also, I started feeding him coconut oil 2 days ago. I started with a teaspoon of it in his food at each meal because all the info says to gradually add it to his diet. Could this be a reaction to coconut oil? I couldn't find adverse reactions like this one on any of the coconut oil sites. I have also been rubbing it into the area which seems marginally sore to him, but he keeps licking it off. Any ideas?
