How to treat Hot Spots on Dogs? | Solutions from Banixx Pet Care

Hot Spots on Dogs

Why does my dog have Hot Spots? Dogs with allergies, sensitivities (food or other), or skin irritations can develop Hot Spots. The infection may quickly worsen if your dog continuously licks or scratches the infected area. Banixx can be used to treat common causes of Hot Spots such as:

  • Skin fungal condition
  • Allergy to flea or tick bites
  • Skin disease
  • Dietary intolerance
  • Food allergy/sensitivity
  • Grass allergy/sensitivity

 Treat with Banixx by spraying your dog's Hot Spot morning and evening until the infection dissipates. Generally speaking, Banixx will do a terrific job with the infection that arises from hot spots.  But, there's a bit more to hot spot treatment than meets the eye, depending on the cause. Please read on to learn more about treatment and prevention...

Some dogs hot spots are caused by a skin fungal condition. In these cases, Banixx will take care of this infection quickly and the dog should make a speedy recovery.

In other cases, however, the hot spots on dogs may be caused by an allergy to flea or tick bites, a skin allergy or a skin disease or a dietary intolerance or food allergy.

For hot spots that arise as a result of a skin allergy or skin disease, Banixx will do a wonderful job with the  infected surface area, but, the cause of the underlying allergy or infection will still need to be addressed in order to find a permanent cure.  In order to pinpoint the underlying cause of your dogs hot spots, a visit to the veterinarian is recommended.  If your dog is suffering from an allergy to flea or tick bites, a flea/tick treatment also needs to be administered along with using Banixx as a topical treatment to the affected area.


For dogs diagnosed with food allergies or sensitivities, making the switch to a grain-free diet can often go a long way toward resolving a dog's hot spot issues.  While the change in diet affects a systemic change, Banixx can be used for topical healing!
