My Cokette has been through a lot with hot spots. I took her over & over to the vet and spent way over $1,000. in vet fees and after a bunch of shampoos, blood tests etc... they still dont know what to tell me. She is on the revolution and the vet started her a month early in case she had mange. I kept telling the vet it was hot spot but the vet still wont agree. This spring, she lost all her fur from the top of her back by her neck to her tail. Her fur is growing back now but she is still getting hot spots and as I feel the top of her back in that spot it gets extreemly hot like if she was burned. I put her in the tub and hoes her down. This helps a little. Is this minopause hot flashes?
Any way a person in the park who voluteers at the humain society was telling me of her dog who is same size as mine is having hot spots too and the vet at the humain society told her to give her dog half of a Benedrill and she says that it's helping. I forgot to ask her if she gives it every day or what. I haven't seen her at the park since to ask. I have given Cokette half of a Benedrill and it appears to be helping. I can't afford to take her back to the vet. I used up all my money I had and they did not help. Cokette is 11 yrs old and she never had this problem until this spring. Does anyone know or is having the same problem?
