Non electric razors and colostrum
My guy was licking on spot excessively and started a hot spot so I started my protocol but changed it up a bit and this may help others with small beginnings of a hot spot.
My guy lets me handle him any where on his body but won't stand still for the power razors so I use to use scissors to cut the fur. this time is used a hand held cheepo razor and he was perfectly fine with that.
after cleaning it, I remembered that colostrum was good for wound healing (there are legitimate studies) and I have a couple jars so I applied a pinch of that on it. It's been a couple days and it looks like it's working. The spot is nice and clean and isn't spreading. Looks like it's healing and seems to have stopped the horrible itching. Still use the cone as he loves colostrum. :-)
Fwiw, just throwing it out here.
