How to Treat A Dog Hot Spot With Banixx
How Banixx Gets Rid Of Hot spots on Dogs
Just about any irritation to your dog’s skin, that causes him to lick, scratch or bite, to gain relief, may lead to the development of a hot spot.
If the answer is “yes” to any of these questions, your dog may be suffering from a hot spot. Officially known as Acute Moist Dermatitis, a hot spot is generally a self-inflicted wound that becomes infected. The wound is caused by excessive licking and scratching as your dog tries to rid itself of an irritant. With its no-sting and no-odor solution, Banixx provides quick, soothing, topical relief to your pet – from the hot spot’s initial discovery through the entire recovery process.
How To Use Banixx at Home to Remedy Your Dog’s Hot Spot
A hot spot can turn into a larger infection quickly. It starts out as a small, red, irritated, wet-looking area and blossoms in size and irritation in short order. To get rid of it before it worsens, gently and generously pat Banixx spay onto the infection and the surrounding area, twice daily, until the hot spot is completely gone. Consistency in application is important, as is quality “contact time.” Since it’s a natural instinct for dogs to lick off anything applied topically, it’s best to distract your dog’s attention with food, a walk or a short play session after applying it, so that Banixx has a chance to go to work.
Banixx is well tolerated by dogs because, unlike other topical solutions or dog medicines, Banixx has no clinical odor (remember, a dog’s sense of smell is greater than a human’s by up to 100,000 times – and an unfamiliar scent will demand his/her attention). In addition, Banixx will not sting, burn or cause further trauma to your pet. And no worries – you cannot overdo the application. Banixx’ success is due to its unique pH level that does not allow bacterial or fungal growth. Without bacteria, an infection simply fades away – it’s a very natural process!

What Are Some Causes of Hot Spots On Dogs?
Hot spots on dogs are nothing to fool around with — their size grows quickly from a small irritated area to a raging, ugly infection. Banixx can bring much-needed, soothing relief to your dog, but the underlying cause still needs to be addressed to find a permanent cure. Following are a few of the more common causes of hot spots:
Food Allergies and Dog Hot Spots
Did you know that while dog (or cat) food allergies may cause gastrointestinal problems, it’s typically their skin that is most often affected?
Dogs are by nature meat eaters. Many dog food “fillers,” such as corn or soy, can lead to a dietary imbalance that results in dog skin irritations. In fact, food allergies may account for as much as 50 percent of dog hot spots. For dogs diagnosed with food allergies or sensitivities, making the switch to a grain-free diet can often go a long way toward resolving hot spot issues. But because a successful change in diet affects the dogs internal system, success may take a couple weeks. Using Banixx – in conjunction with the change in diet – can provide your pet with quick, soothing, topical relief throughout the healing process!
Dog Skin Allergies/Itchy Dog Skin
Banixx is a first-rate antifungal and antibacterial topical solution! For hot spots caused by a skin fungal (yeast) condition, Banixx will take care of the infection in short order. Banixx is colorless, odorless, and painless, so application is a breeze. Many products are advertised as itchy dog skin cures but the answer generally lies in a multi-faceted approach involving diet, environment and a quality skin application such as Banixx.
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 specific cause of the underlying allergy or infection will still need to be identified if you want find a permanent cure.

Allergy/Sensitivity to Flea or Tick Bites
If your dog is suffering from an allergy to flea or tick bites, (also known as allergic dermatitis), using a flea/tick treatment is recommended. But, did you know that some flea/tick treatments require the pest to bite its host before it will die? To provide your pet with quick, soothing, topical relief throughout the flea/tick treatment and healing process, apply Banixx in conjunction with the flea/tick treatment. In the case of fleas and ticks, however, it is not enough to just treat the affected dog – you MUST also treat your dog’s environment, including your house, the dog’s bedding, and other animals in the home. Generally, the only fleas you will see are the adult fleas that represent only about 5 percent of a flea infestation – the remaining 95 percent is made up of flea eggs, larvae, and pupae. To eliminate these, wash your dog’s bedding in a bleach solution and apply cider vinegar to your dogs environment. Going forward, Banixx and a regular topical flea treatment should make him happy dog!
Believe it or not, dogs can get lonely, bored, or stressed. Large dogs, in particular, may sometimes “entertain” themselves by obsessively chewing, biting, or licking at little spots on their bodies such as minor insect bites. Before long, bacteria creeps in, a secondary infection occurs, and you have a raging hot spot on your dog. Although early and consistent applications of Banixx can alleviate the itching, this type of hot spot may be easily prevented by simply keeping your dog active and happy.
Using Banixx to Relieve Hot Spots
Keeping in mind that there may be a variety of causes for your dog’s hot spot, some of which may need additional treatment options, Banixx can be used alone – or in conjunction with traditional medications – to provide soothing relief to your pet throughout the entire healing process. The science behind Banixx is simple, yet amazing: Its unique pH and high oxygen levels create an acidic environment that is totally inhospitable to bacteria and fungi. As a result, your dog’s immune system, can spend significantly more time healing the injured tissue than fighting infection.
Kodi’s recovery, using Banixx, for successful Hot Spot Treatment (a customer testimonial from Jeremy, Wauseon, OH).
We learned of Banixx Pet Care at a show in Pennsylvania. We told the Banixx rep of the problems that our Akita has with Hot Spots. She told us that Hot Spots may have an underlying cause but, despite that, Banixx may give some good relief. We got home and there was Kodi with a huge hot spot! The timing couldn’t have been better. We applied Banixx immediately. We used to use a really well-known product and Kodi was immediately uncomfortable and licked it off…making things worse! With Banixx, there was no flinching or licking and it healed in 3-4 days. Before, …it took over a week! I am a seasoned Dog Handler and we own a pet shop so we now sell Banixx regularly; it’s a product that we really believe in!

“Great for my dog’s hotspot! My dog’s hotspot started looking better within hours and was gone in 2 days.”By s0nicfreak (Amazon Customer)
“I can’t recommend this product strongly enough. My dog had a bad hot spot on the crease of his hind legs, made it hard for him to walk, wouldn’t heal, and had lost lots of hair. 2 treatments and he stopped scratching at the spot, 2-days and the open would was scabbed over, and 2-weeks later he’s running through fields and chasing balls again.”By M. Henry (Amazon Customer)
“I purchased this at a local pet store. My American Bulldog is constantly getting hot spots from allergies, and cuts/scratches from playing rough. This spray is a miracle. I just have to spray it on her scabs and she instantly stops scratching at them and they heal in a day or two. It doesn’t really have a smell, and best of all, she seems to love when I spray it on her hot spots/wounds. Definitely will purchase this again.”By Ashes Crashes
“I researched the best product for my dog’s hot spot. After reading reviews on several sites on so many different products, I found this one to have the best. After using it twice a day for 3 weeks not only did her skin get better but her hair also grew back on her tail. This is the only product I will ever use on any spots she will ever have. Thankful to have found it.”By Crystal (Amazon Customer)
