What is a hot spot?
Generally, a hot spot is an exposed irritation on your dog's skin. It will likely be hot to the touch.
There are many causes of hot spots including allergies, dry/itchy skin, and more. If we find a hot spot on your dog, we'll let you know. Treatment is most effective when treating the underlying condition.
We suggest you consult your vet for diagnosis and treatment of said underlying causes.
