  • 4. However, there are a number of natural remedies for dog hot spots that can be used, and even begintreating them before they get so bad that a trip to the vet is necessary. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 5. Occurring most of the time in the same places - the side of the face/cheek area, under the throat, and on the hip area - they can literally appear overnight, with owners waking up to a big, oozing, smelly sore that was not there the previous day - so it is important to be aware of these things to more easily provide treatmentfor dog hot spots, or even to prevent them in the future. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 6. Like any infection, the object of anytreatment for dog hot spots is to get the "heat" and inflammation down, reducepain, and prevent the dog from causingmore trauma to himself (usually done by the dog itching and obsessively licking/chewing) while healing takes place. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 7. Shaving away the hair from aroundthe whole the area to get off any that is caked with blood and pus, and toopen up the skin so it can breathe, is a must for proper dog hot spot treatment. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 8. After clipping the spot, it should becleaned with a gentle, non-stinging soap, then dried well. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 9. Thorough drying is veryimportant, since moisture will just promote bacterial regrowth. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 10. If the dogs hot spot is to the point ofbeing an oozing mess, antibiotics will be necessary, so a trip to the vet is probably warranted. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 11. A short course of steroid, or a steroid injection, may be suggested, and if the dog is constantly at himself, or seems very painful, it is probably agood idea at least to get him through the first few days of treatment. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 12. For a dog with hot spots that are not so bad, it is many times possible to treat these sores athome, naturally, as long as treatment is diligent and complete. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 13.

  • 15. Extracts that include ingredients such as Camomilla, Cina, Arumtriph, Astragalus, and Purpura, just to name a few, which act as anti- inflammatory, antiseptic and anti- bacterial agents in regard to the skin, are suggested. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 16. Additionally, antioxidants and ingredients that support cellregeneration will aid quicker healing. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 17. If it seems to help, an anti-inflammatory or skin-cooling topical spray can be used while the canine hot spot is still red and raw, but ointments or other preparations that will keep the spot from drying up should be avoided. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 18. There are actually many different herbs and natural ingredients that can help treat hot spots on dogswhich can be researched, includingsome that do not come in a vial or jar. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 19. In a dilution of 1:10 (1 to 10), applecider vinegar and water used multiple times daily as a skin rinse can sometimes be all that is necessary. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 20. Black tea bags (not herbal teas) thathave been soaked in hot water, thensqueezed out slightly before applying them as warm compresses has apparently seen some success, too. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 21. Also, corn starch patted into the sore can help speed healing by keeping the hot spot as dry as possible. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 22. While there is little that can be doneabout a random hot spot showing up on a dog, generally, if a dog has gotten one before the possibility isalways there that he can get another one. www.naturaldogremedies.org
  • 23. Whether speaking in terms of the chronic sufferer or a random affliction however, catching the hot spot early, before toomuch damage has been done, will get thebest results from natural remedies for hot spots on dogs. www.naturaldogremedies.org
