The Danger Of Hot Spots

The skin is the first barrier between the body and the outside world. Moist dermatitis or a “hot spot” occurs when the pet itches or obsessively grooms aggravated skin until the area is raw. This action breaks the surface of the skin and allows bacteria to grow and proliferate, so the affected area can become inflamed and infected, leading to a moist lesion that is extremely itchy and uncomfortable.

Hot spots can grow very fast and become an open wound easily because of the self-trauma caused by the nonstop licking and scratching. It can induce hair loss and it can affect both dogs and cats. If left untreated, the wounds can grow into a severe health concern.

Improper fur care and bites from pests like mites and fleas can also result in a hot spot. In fact, any condition that can damage the skin can technically cause a hot spot and Coco Furcare can help prevent these uncomfortable situations.
