Hot Spot Relief


Scalding water

1 black or green teabag

Dip the teabag briefly in scalding water. Remove the tea from the water and let it cool to a comfortable temperature.

Press it gently against the hot spot for a few minutes while holding and petting your animal. If your pet will allow it, tie the teabag in place with a strip of cloth and leave it on the hot spot for up to 1 hour. If it fails to improve, take your pet to the veterinarian.
