Dog hot spots treatment

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

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

 Treat 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 the hot spot treatment on dogs than meets the eye, depending on the cause. Please read on to learn more about hot spot treatment and prevention...

Sometimes a hotspot on your dog is caused by a skin fungal condition. In these cases, Banixx will take care of this infection quickly since Banixx is a first rate antifungal and antibacterial treatment and the dog should make a speedy recovery.

In other cases, however, the hot spot on your dog 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, (also known as allergic dermatitis) then a flea/tick treatment is recommended in conjunction 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!
