When they become red spots they’re often called hot spots and basically, it’s just from your dog itching so badly.
One of the bad things about this happening is that if your dog is itching that much that it creates hot spots. These hot spots can become infected. So if you see anything where your dog is breaking open sores from scratching or if they have that odd smell like they really have a bad odor, please take them to the vet right away because they could have an infection.
To make it easy for you, I came up with the acronym H.A.P.S.S.
So you can look over your dog: head, armpits, paws, skin and stomach area.
When dogs are chewing on their paws, it’s actually because their paws are itchy to them.
What you can do is try to rinse off their paws if they’re outside and you know there’s a lot of pollen. But they also might just be scratching with their other paw. They might be rubbing their skin against the furniture like I said or in the carpet.
Let’s just recap what the main symptoms are that your dog is going to have:
- They can be chewing at their feet
- Constant licking, constant scratching
- Rubbing their face
- Inflamed ears
