JJ has developed a hot spot and I want to try a few more things before I decide to e-collar him. I have tried a hot spot spray and it doesn't seem to be helping and he still bothers it. I also have tried bag balm because as it dries it gets really itchy.. but then I read on the internet that you actually WANT it to dry out and not to use ointments. I am not sure if it is allergy related, stress related (it started last week when I was working a slightly different work schedule and Jim was out of town.. so it COULD be stress that started it) or if it might possibly be fleas. So I gave them their next Frontline treatment a few days early in case it was fleas. SO what have you all tried for hot spots and found to actually work?
