BTW, I HOPE CHARMED WOLF CAN HELP YOU WHEN SHE SEES THAT PHOTO!
If the dead hair doesn't get brushed away from the shedding season, it sometimes will get trapped against the skin. It will rub against the skin and cause a hot spot. This will happen more so if moisture gets into the dead hair. If the dog doesn't scratch it, they often clear up up quickly and don't get enlarged and as red a people normally see them.Cwolf, how does shedding season cause hotspots?
What is that all about?
Catherine said her dog's sores do not feel hot to the touch, would they still be "hot spots" then?
