Hot Spots (continued...)

Mum said to say THANK YOU to all my friends for sharing with us their remedy for hot spots.. If they don't clear up soon (or if I can't lick them away), she'll start trying out all of them one by one *faint*... Here's what we gathered:-

1) 24 hour air conditioning to keep me nice and cool - from Fu Fu

2) Eliminate all wheat products from my diet - from Sunshade

3) Diluted pure apple cider vinegar - from Scrappy

4) Lidocaine spray - from Butchy and Snickers

5) Twice a day, wipe with wet tissue (or preferred cleanser), pat dry, apply antibacterial cream, pat off excess, apply calamine lotion, let it dry/pat off excess (powder optional) - from Chiyo

I will keep everyone posted on my progress.. I hope the dang spots go away soon cos I am getting sick and tired of knocking into furniture with the e-collar..

Oh and today is a very important day.. it is the birthday of my very good HamsTerrier friend Fu Fu:

* Fu Fu, here's a personalised birthday greeting from one of

my besotted sisters who is so in love with you*

- Oh and she also said to add this: "Pick me, pick me" (the saga continues)


Boo said...

oh huskee,

the saga is not ended yet? sigh! fufu, you better make the decision quick quick or both of them gonna kill each other!

so huskee, which remedy are you gonna try? i also read from the internet that using cold tea bag (after used) and place on the hotspot works too.

Hi Boo, thanks so much for ur recommendations. We would love to try all the suggestions and see which one works for Huskee, but he doesn't let anything or anyone go near a metre radius from his hotspots.
He's very sensitive about his paws and will try and snap n bite anything that touches him, which would usually be our fingers. meanwhile, we r keeping our fingers (while we still have them)will go away.

Huskee, i saw that comment on my blog.. and you were saying yours are worse than my 'chicken feet'. I thought my problem was extreme already.

Btw, the spoilt brat sis of mine says hi and she decided that you are going to be one of her man. I wonder what you see in her. Anyway, she got the cheek to get you a little something for Valentine. What a flirt! So she wants me to tell to wait by your mailbox.


Stacey said...

Hey Huskee Boy,
I hope your yuckie hot spots go away VERY soon and that you escape THE cone.

Love and Licks

Wow, your mum's going to be busy trying out all those remedies on you! Paws crossed one of them works quickly.

Herbie said...

have you tried sulfodene? my M applies that on my hotspots and they dry up after 2-3 days. Of course, she shaved the fur as well so that it'll heal faster.
