Skin Care for Dogs is the most advanced and comprehensive system developed to treat canine skin problems such as "hot spots".
What Is A Hot Spot?
A hot spot is the common name given to the condition called pyotraumatic dermatitis. A hot spot is a bacterial infection (usually staphylococcus intermedius) that develops and rapidly spreads on the skin. A hot spot will be warm to the touch, painful to your dog and will emit pus and smell badly. Hair usually falls out from the infected area. Because this condition is so painful and irritating, a dog will often bite and scratch the area further spreading the infection. Treatment should be started as soon as possible to prevent the infection from spreading and becoming systemic.
*Reduce Biting and Licking While Treating The Cause
Dogs often bite or lick the infected areas. In many cases, such as hot spots and lick granuloma, the licking and chewing is detrimental. It prevents healing or spreads the infection. Skin Care for Dogs helps stop this problem. Its menthol base tastes badly detering biting and licking, while the Skin Care treats and relieves the source of the problem. Consequently, wounds and infections heal faster.
CLINICAL STUDIES PROVE EFFECTIVENESS.....
A survey of 106 canine owners with dogs having chronic hot spot conditions showed that Skin Care for Dogs improved the hot spot condition within 3 days for 92% of the dogs. After 7 days, Skin Care for Dogs improved the hot spot condition for 98% of the dogs.
An in vitro clinical study which consisted of 2 separate trials (performed by an independent micro-biological testing facility) proved that Skin Care for Dogs killed 99.9% of the Staphylococcus intermedius bacteria (the "hot spot" causing bacteria) within 1 minute of contact time.
Hot Spots can be triggered by allergies. While it is recommended to use Skin Care to clear skin infections, seeking treatment for the allergy itself is also suggested. Allergy treatment can reduce or eliminate hot spot outbreaks in some dogs. If you think your dog's hot spot problem is due to allergies contact your vet.
