Our expert says:
Hot spots are treated by clipping the coat clear around and over the affected area and using a topical antibiotic preparation. They can appear "overnight" and can be minimized by keeping the coat clean and bathing with medicated shampoos periodically. They can cause immense pain and sometimes affected animals need to be sedated to enable them to be clipped.
