Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Bandit has developed hot spots on the back of her leg. Shes been chewing and chewingand chewing. IIt's bad. No fur. Just bed skin, couple of scabs forming. The vet gave me these wipes to use and idk if they are working. I've stopped her from chewing on any of her skin at anytime I'm around. I know she still chews that spot cause her breathe smells like the wipes. I feel like it's getting worse. Now since I've stopped her from chewing anywhere now sometimes she starting to not clean herself after peeing. I'm afraid I'm going about this the wrong way. I've been putting some rubbing alcohol on there to keep it clean and hopefully she is deterred from chewing. What do I do? Any guidance?

The following advice came from a Corgie breeder, with around 30 years experience dealing with hots spots on hers and others dogs.

Dab affected area with 3% solution of Hydrogen Peroxide and then dab with Betadine liquid. This will dry out the area and aid quicker recovery.

Moisture is the main problem with hot spots, so you may need to resort to a cone of some description for a couple of days if you can't stop the licking.

In going forward, have a look at diet as I am a firm believer that most skin conditions have the source from within. Probiotics are excellent for re-establishing healthy gut flora and increases the ability to fight off potential infections.

Half a teaspoon of turmeric powder and a teaspoon of coconut oil added daily to the diet is also a great supplement.

Best of luck with getting this under control.

In the past, I've had very good luck with a product called Sulfodene. Seems to have enough of an ickiness about it prevent licking, also.
