A "hot spot" is a sensitive or red area of the skin on your dog that can cause quite a bit of discomfort. They are caused when the pet is scratching or itching because of a problem that may lie under the skin. Whatever reason your pet may have them, they are uncomfortable. The active ingredient in Sulfodene Skin Medication (2-Mercaptobenzothiazole) works to treat the skin and help with minor irritations like hot spots. While it can be used if your pet has minor scratches or abrasions, anything deeper and you will want to consult your veterinarian.
Applying Sulfodene Skin Medication with a clean cloth or cotton swab twice daily can help your pet. Your dog may lick the medication, but this is not harmful. This safe and effective treatment can help your dog deal with hot spots. While hot spots form for a number of different reasons, they can make your dog even more uncomfortable. The more they itch, the more they scratch and chew, making the problem worse. This medication for their skin can help alleviate that vicious cycle.
