I have a six month old teddy bear dog his name is Milo. He recently got a hotspot under his chin and was digging at it for sometime. When I finally realized what it was i went to the pet store and purchased a product called DogMD Maximum defense hotspot skin remedy. I have been applying that for three days now and it has been getting better. I clean the hotspot twice a day with warm water and then apply the ointment. I have been applying that for three days now and it has been getting better. I am worried because after I apply the ointment Milo runs around the house and tries to hide underneath things. He runs away from me and seems stressed out after I apply the ointment. I am not able to trim the hair around the area because he freaks out and wonâ€™t let me. He has an appointment in two weeks but I am not sure if I should wait that long. Iâ€™m not sure if this is normal behavior or if I should try something else.? The hotspot has scabbed over with a hard surface that is brown. Underneath that spot the Skin is turning red. I feel so bad and donâ€™t know what to do please help!
