Hot Spot Treatments for Your Dog
EcoSpot is an all-natural, hot spot healer that protects and nourishes the skin against irritating hot spots and wounds caused by bacteria, yeast, fungus and skin mite infections.
Irritating hot spots are the bane of all dogs.
Scratch as they might, their paws just aren’t enough to get rid of those painful, and at times debilitating skin infections.
If you go to the vet, you may come back with a slew of fancy names for these irritated, red spots. They are clinically referred to as pyotramatic dermatitis, moist dermatitis, or Moist Eczema, and called by some Summer Sores.
Some common causes are a dog’s allergies to certain grasses or weeds, food allergies, fleas, mites, insect bites and skin wounds. The area of the hot spot can indicate what is triggering the reaction.
Hot spots on the paws can indicate several problems. Once the skin is irritated, a bacterial infection may set into the skin, further aggravating the area. Dogs with a heavy undercoat are particularly susceptible to developing hot spots. Dog groomers report that they often see the certain breeds plagued more by hot spots than others, including Bichon Frisé, Shih Tzu, Beagle, Chow Chow, and the Alaskan Malamute.
However, any breed or cross-breed can get a hot spot, at any time.
If not treated promptly, a visit to the vet may be the only alternative.
Pain control medication, anti-inflammatory drugs and injections, sedatives, “Elizabethan collars,” and antibiotics are some of the options a vet may prescribe. If oral antibiotics are indicated, the vet will usually prescribe them for a course of three to four weeks and sometimes longer. Often a short course of corticosteroids (i.e., prednisone) is given to relieve the itching and pain due to the inflammation.
The vet may also prescribe antihistamines for the itchiness. Though it’s not common, severe hot spots sometime will cause permanent scarring.
We strongly believe in using the least invasive and most gentle methods as a first response. They are often the least expensive as well.
A quick spray provides the instant relief your dog’s skin needs, and in just a few days you will notice the skin and hair growing back.
The level of progress on your dog’s hot spot treatment will have to do with the severity of the infection and how deep the wounds are.
Because EcoSpot Dog Hot Spots Treatment is a touchless spray, it can safely be applied directly to the dog’s affected area.
Just spray the area and let dry.
In many cases, new skin will appear and the hot spot will disappear completely in the first 48 hours.
“The great thing about this product is no hair trimming or prep work is required. When he gets [hot spots], we bathe him and spray this on the area a few times a day, and his skin clears up every single time.” — Jon Warren
“I had tried everything from antibacterial/anti fungal shampoos, anti itch shampoos, medicated washes, antiseptic washes/sprays and nothing worked for my poor dog. She was losing hair on her backside, had sore, red hot spots, and was constantly itching.I have used this only 4 times so far on her and her hot spots are healing and some are gone. She’s not itching nearly as bad and her hair is actually starting to come back on her back. I will definitely be keeping stock in this and would recommend it to anyone. It’s been a lifesaver for my poor baby.” — Valerie
Really? You mean I don’t have to go to the vet? This hot spot looks pretty bad.
Probably not. That said, never count the vet out completely. After all, they are the animal healthcare professionals.
But vets can be quite expensive as they have lots of tests they like to run through first.
So while vets are always a good option, they need not be the first option for a simple hot spot. Regular folks like you and us can easily tell when a dog’s skin is swollen and bloodied from excess itching and scratching.
“Just as the early reviews helped me in selecting this product for my dogs–the product cleared up the hot spots in about 2-3 days. Saved a vet bill…and got Snickers well…he is a Chocolate Cocker. The investment in the product was well worth the results and there is no more scratching or redness.” — TexasLady
Why Natural Matters
As a general rule, Vet Organics believes a slightly higher cost for natural products is worth it for your dog.
In the case of hot spot treatment, this is your dog’s skin we’re talking about. Natural products come from the earth and tend to be much safer, even nourishing to the body.
“My puppy has demodectic mange. Luckily the vet wanted to “wait it out.” This gave me time to research what natural methods would be beneficial. All of the herbs I read that were needed….I found in this one bottle! I have been using it now for about a week and there is a significant change in our puppy. Her hair is growing back and if I see her chew a new spot…I spray it and she relaxes.” — Homeschooling Mama
