He will be 6 years old in January (I can't believe it!) and this past week, I discovered a "hot spot" on him. It's my first experience with this condition ever. It is in the very middle of his back. He can reach it to scratch with both of his back feet and he can turn himself around and bite at it with his teeth as well. Until we can get him a vet appointment, I have been giving him Benadryl 3 times a day, so not long after he gets his medicine, he is a little "out of it" (this picture is a good example).
Anyone else have much experience with treating this? We have 2 inside dogs and 3 inside cats, so we have to stay on top of the flea treatments and sometimes they sneak by us. Storm has always had kind of sensitive skin also and has benefited from the oatmeal bathes.
I thought I would share a little of my Stormous with ya'll today. He's my little buddy! Where I go, he goes. I can admit...when I saw the patch of skin with no hair on his back, I panicked a bit.
