It has been observed that itchy skin, paw chewing, constant licking and allergies in dogs have become more common than ever before. Like us, animals get bitten, stung, have allergic reactions to insects or many other irritants, or even get sunburned. Excessive licking, chewing and scratching can lead to open sores, setting your dog up for a skin infection.
Dog hot spots are a result of a skin condition officially called pyotraumatic dermatitis. It is a bacterial infection that develops and rapidly spreads in the skin. Hot spots will be warm to the touch, and painfully itchy for a dog. Hot spots emit pus and smell badly. Hair loss from around the infected area is common. Because dog hot spots are so painful and irritating many dogs will bite and scratch the area causing the infection to spread.
Hot spots are most common in dogs with thick coats however, hot spots can occur in any breed. A common cause for hot spots is moisture getting caught next to the dog's skin, making an ideal spot for an infection to start. Moisture can become trapped by matted fur, a dog collar, or simply a thick coat. Many times chronic dog hot spots stem from an allergic condition, though some dogs are simply more prone to hot spots than others.
