    One of our dogs has this spot in the center of his back just behind front shoulders. My first thought is hot spot but it is middle of winter so not sure. I also think DW been sneaking him a lot of people food, not sure though. Any ideas

    I could guess but I'd probably be wrong. Even if I was right, you'd still have to take the pup to the vet anyways, so that's my recommendation.

    looks like hot spot which can happen any time of year. could also be ringworm. Do you have a black light ? Ringworm will glow under black light. The best and cheapest treatment for hot spot is Bonds medicated powder in yellow bottle ( for people)dries it out and stops itch.

    I think hot spot also , looking at it close does not look like ringworm. We will try the gold bond, thanks for the tip.

    Going to the vet can be very expensive. If not a emergency there are treatments you can try 1st. Everyone who has a dog that gets hot spots should keep benadril and Bonds medicated powder in there doggy supplies. Also imodium and aspirin
