Hot Spots Homeopet hot spot; If you ask most vets the most frustrating problem we treat in both conventional, integrative or holistic veterinary medicine, it is the ever increasing numbers of allergic and itchy dogs that are coming through our doors every day in veterinary clinical practice. It is often quite frustrating, especially in these economic hard times, to simply prescribe repetitive courses of antibiotics, at best partially effective antihistamines, and long term cortisone and the potential side effects associated with its use to animal guardians' pets, only to see them return a short time later with rebound itching and even worse itchy or infected skin. Many clients can not currently afford the newer more expensive alternative medicines like cyclosporine or atopica, especially in the larger breed dogs, and in a similar light, referrals to dermatologists, and long term treatment plans with restricted diets over many months, expensive blood and/or skin allergy testing that takes up to one year to full evaluate the effect of prescribed allergy vaccines, makes it even harder on clients on fixed incomes and budgets. That is why I always try and recommend the best natural diets I can, preferably one with minimal to no grains in them, as many other commonly prescribed carbohydrate based dry kibbles are often incriminated by many holistic vets as contributing to a syndrome known as leaky gut, and the subsequent development of inflammation elsewhere in the body, including worsening skin inflammation and itching. Along with adjunctive shampoo therapy, and oral supplements like omega 3 fatty acids, DMG liquid and proanthozone from 1800petmeds, these alternative long term supplements, which with continued use, can often lessen amounts of drugs or expensive workups needed in such allergy cases. That is also where such an economic but often effective natural product like homeopet hot spot drops can help in naturally alleviating symptoms in our allergic pets on a SHORT TERM BASIS.. The combination of several common homepathic remedies like sulphur, graphites, rhus tox, and hepar sulph in one remedy can often offer dramatic short term relief during intense allergy and hot spot flareups. However I NEVER recommend using such a product long term more than a few weeks, as with continued combination homeopathic remedy use, efficacy often drops off dramatically, as well as the fact that if clients want to truly cure their pets on a longer term deeper homeopathic level, that they best work with an experienced classical homeopath, who uses one individually prescribed homeopathic remedy at a time, based on the unique symptoms and history of that particular patient. In very sensitive pets, prolonged use can even lead to suppression and disappearance of skin symptoms, resulting in deeper allergic or immune mediated disease in the body, which is not the goal of homeopathic treatment. So while I am fine with the short term use of this product during acute flareups if your pet is not under a professional homeopathic vet's care, long term homeopathic prescribing is best left to a trained and seasoned classical homeopath who can truly allow your pet to gain higher levels of health. So my overall rating of this product is a 4. Its ease of use a 5, however because of its limitation and risk in chronic use, I have to give it an efficacy in those situations of a 3.5, needing professional homepathic veterinary guidance in those clients who can afford such consultations. . 12/19/2008
Inexpensive and it works! Been using product for approximately 2 months now and worked great on our 95 pound 11 Year Old Great Dane/Lab Mix. We saw results within a week when he stopped licking the hot spots and after 2 months he is not licking and all the fur has come back. I highly recommend trying this product, before going through the expense of the vet. 01/18/2015
This is a good one. We started using HomeoPet Hot Spots on our Lab and so far it seems to be working. They are looking much better. They seem to be healing. This is much more reasonable than going to the vet now that we know what they are. We just put the drops on a treat and he takes them willingly. Thanks for such a good product. 12/10/2012

Mini schnauzer This product has not worked for my poor dog Lilly. She is still scratching all the time. Don't waste your money, this product was a disappointment and did not work the way I hoped it would. 04/27/2012

My boy cat is having a hard time with skin problems. He is scabby, and has mucus in his eye and sneezes a lot. I have been using Revolution about once every 20 days and now will try benedryl for him. I would like very much to use something to sooth his skin until it is healed. What is recommended? (Please do not offer dog solutions for my cat, thanks!)
Answer:We are very sorry to hear about this. Please consult with the vet in regards to proper treatment for your furry pal. We hope they feel better!
I have a female cat, 5 1/2 years old, I have been giving her Atopica for the past 7 months and she still itches, scratches and licks when she is awake. Will this Hot Spot be better for her than the Atopica. She has dry skin. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Thank you for your question. Please consult with the vet prior to changing the Atopica since it is a prescription medication. You can look into Super Pure Omega 3 as a supplement which will help with the skin and coat of your furry pal.
Answer:Thank you for your question. You would use the product until the symptoms have improved. If the problem persists, you would need to consult your veterinarian.
