Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand there is a sore spot on Loralai that appeared suddenly. I am sorry to hear about what happened. Did Loralai happen to get a rabies vaccination recently? Is there any chewing or licking behavior that you have noticed in this region?

She got her rabies last year and she doesn't normally lick or chew n that region , I am wondering if it could be ring worm but my husband doesn't think so.
Veterinarian: Scott Perry, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

It appears to be a superficial dermatitis, which is commonly known as a "hot spot." Insect of flea bite is often the cause, although frequent chewing in the region can also cause it. Ringworm is possible but lower on the list of differentials. Treatment for this is to apply with topical antibiotic ointment every 12 hours for 7 days. If it appears to be getting worse, or if it is not fully resolved after 7 days, then it should be seen by a veterinarian who may need to treat with oral medications. A ringworm test can be done at that time as well.
