Hot Spots? Flea Allergy?
My dog has dime, quarter and pencil eraser sized spots on his back; we have also found them on his sides and legs.
They puss, scab and the skin falls off.
* I am wondering what they could be and what I could do to help him?
He itches them after they start.
We live in Utah and have been in Texas for 2 months (they started in Texas, right after we got here and have just gotten worse!)
I have multiple fleas on him (there are not fleas in Utah)
I have applied Frontline monthly, we bathe him in flea and tick shampoo.. and have had to cut his hair ridiculously short to try to keep the fleas off of him. (which helps a little).
We have tried:
Bathing, Frontline, Adams plus fleas & tick mist, both on him and the house.
Took him to the vet when it first started (new vet).
I am just not sure were to go from here. We are due to go back to Utah this week and will see the vet when we get there, but until then I just need a little help.
* Could it be flea allergies? If it is can you recommend something to keep them off of him?
* Do I need to worry about taking fleas home with me?
We travel in a travel trailer.
