I came home to this?
« on: July 14, 2008, 08:00:41 pm »
 ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

I came home and found Milo had a huge patch of hair and skin missing from his head.I took one look at it and almost threw up. I called the vet and ask if i could bring himin this was at 4:30pm they said bring him in. I put him in the car and could'nt even look at him . I got him there and said here take him please before i throw up.He was back there for a while Dr. Gaines came out and said he has hot spots they shaved him and he looks worse.I will try and up load some pics don't look at them if you get grossed out easy ! Pray for him to heal quickly Marina

Oh my goodness! I have never seen such a bad hot spot, and what an odd place for it. I hope it gets better soon!

Kira had a nasty one like that on the side of her face last Sept.  Our vet gave us oral antibiotics, steroids and a liquid antibiotic wash that i put in a spray bottle to administer.  Within two days it was drying up.  the hair took forever to grow back though.
Hers was allergy related.

I hope he is feeling better soon.  Poor boy looks miserable.

Aww, poor Milo.  I've never seen a hotspot that big.  I hope he feels better soon.

Harley gets hot spots like that on her feet from allergies. Not fun, and it breaks your heart to see them in pain  :'( But good news is now that you have the medication for it, it will heal up in no time  :)

Oh poor Milo!  Fumble has skipped the hot spots and just gone directly to the serious staph infections, so i've never really seen one.  But i've heard that they make the poor things uncomfortable!  Hopefully it heals soon, but i'm sure Milo is in his mommy's hands!!  Fumble sends lots of drooly kisses!
