Rosie, our labxgolden retreiver, developed a hot spot under her collar that spread SUPER fast and we didn’t catch until it became infected because she has a thick winter undercoat still…….poor girl….I’m a baaaad labby mommy!!!!!!….she is now shaved on the neck and on three medications 😦 I sure hope it heals quickly!!!!!!!!! 😦  Only good thing was that they didn’t have to sedate her to shave it, she’s such a love muffin that she just let them do what was needed! Strangely, our vet colleen, said that she’s had a run of “hot spots” the past few weeks, she thinks its something to do with the change in the weather from cold dry to cold wet!!
