A lot of scotties seem to be having some itchiness issues this fall, so when mine became itchy I didn't think too much about it. But a few days ago she chewed herself a pretty nice sized hot spot on her butt that started to ooze and just look all around icky. So we took her in to the vet just to make sure she's ok. The vet said it was most likely from a flea bite and that some dogs are very sensitive and even one bite can cause a bad reaction. Needless to say, we have vacuumed and washed bedding and both doggies got their much needed dose of Frontline!

and see her!
Poor Pippen had to have the spot around the hot spot shaved and cleaned. She got a cortisone shot to help with the itching and has more antibiotics to take. And the WORST part of all?! When we're not home she had to wear the CONE! Sigh, poor Pippen.
