My golden retriever has recently gotten "spots" on her hind legs! She has two on each hip/upper leg. She has had them for a couple of weeks now. I am getting worried about it. She is also trying to either bite or lick at these spots. Does anyone know anything about this? What should I do? She will be taken into the vet sometime this week!
Is it "hot spots"? These are areas that have moisture and develop into a rash and can become infected. Apply mild detergent, rinse and apply antibiotic ointment. Twice daily. Also, you must shave the area. Also, I'm not sure where you live, but the knats will cause red circles that look like "ringworm". Talk to your vet about what product would help. Frontline, etc. I use Proticall and love it!
She is going to the vet Thursday, June 7, for a check-up and booster shots. We live about 5 miles south of the Kentucky/Tennessee border, in Tennessee. The gnats can get bad during our summers! I will talk to the vet about her "spots" when she goes for her check-up.
my youngest daughter keeps getting ring worm from somewhere. its a pesky little thing and we now use anti fungal cream and it works- dnt know why she has gotton it 2x this past 3 months- no one else has it in our house or the dogs dont have it either-
