My name is***** and I would like to answer your question. Can you send a picture of the spot on her hip? Do you remember if she received a vaccination in that area?

There should be a way to directly upload the picture in jpg format into this feed. Try copying and pasting directly into your text box.
There is also a little paperclip button at the top of the text box where you can attach a picture that is saved on your computer.
How is your dog this evening? Any change in the spot on the skin?
Do you have any more questions for me?
Also, if you would consider rating our conversation, I would greatly appreciate it.
You never sent a picture of the spot so I could not answer your question. There are numerous causes of reddish/purple spots on dogs so just your description was inadequate. Also, hot spots are usually very itchy and the dogs are licking and chewing aggressively at the spot, so your history of "it doesn't bother her" does not fit with a hot spot.
If you could send a picture of the spot, I would be very happy to help you find the best treatment for your dog.
Again, there is a paperclip button above your text box where you can attach a picture into this feed.
