MY DOG GETS HOT SPOTS ON TAIL

June 09, 2014

My dog occasionally gets "hot spots , mainly on the very top of his tail. What causes this and how do I get rid of it

Hi Sheree,
Inflammation on the top of the base of the tail is usually the result of a flea infestation or a Staph infection in the tissue of the tail gland. This can be treated with antibiotic therapy. Hope this has been of help to you.
