PHOENIX, Ariz. - (March 21, 2003) Ever have an itch that just won't stop, no matter how much you scratch? Well, if it's happening with cats and dogs it could be a sign of a problem.

One of the most common canine medical problems seen by veterinarians is skin related, such as rashes and hot spots. Some dogs will continue to dig and scratch until they really damage their own skin. Does your dog experience itching so intense that it rubs, scratches and bites incessantly? That may be may be a sign of hot spots . Other signs include hair loss, redness, scaling and secondary infection.

A hot spot starts because something irritates the dog's skin. The dog's response is to scratch the affected area causing the skin to become raw and often infected. Many things can lead to these hot spots including food and airborne allergens, ticks, fleas and other insect bites, and contact allergens like grass. The best way to avoid hot spots is prevention. Keep fleas and ticks off your dog. Groom and bathe your dog as necessary to keep the hair and coat in good condition. Keep nails trimmed and limit sources of irritation to the best of your ability. However, if treatment is needed, a leading brand of dermatological products for dogs is available at pet, grocery and drug stores, making relief minutes away in most cases.
