Chloe my pit bull mix has 4 red spots on belly and 3 on her legs. Smaller than a dime but bigger than a pencil eraser. I checked her over for fleas and couldn't find any. Are.these what they call hot spots? And what can I do about them?
They sound like some kind of bug bites to me. Maybe fire ants, spider or chiggers? Can you post pictures? Is she chewing or licking at them? Harley has had the occasional hotspot and they've always been on his side or near his tail. They are usually bigger than what you're describing and he only gets one at a time. I clean them well and put neosporin or triple antibiotic on them until they are completely gone. Maybe the others can offer more help.
