I have been struggling with Sammy for almost nine years with her hot spots. When we have wet warm seasons of course she is at her worse. 

I also suspect Sammy is allergic to corn. My husband accidentally added corn to her diet a few days ago. Yep, within hours she was inflamed and itching. 

Also, the fleas effect Sammy's hot spot. Healing seems to happen more easily when there are not as many fleas, such as the winter. Of course that does depends on if we have a cold or warm winter. This is Texas, warm and humid is typical all year.

I am a firm believer in healing a body from the inside out. However, I do trust in treatments that can help to calm and bring relief. So, I went searching to see what easy not costly treatments we can try with Sammy.  

The Veterinary Secrets is a great video to watch. The Vet reminds us to be sure to clean the area and than apply the treatments. I love this Vet, he uses all natural medications. 

The vet in the video suggested we try a half of cup of black tea with an aspirin and apply to the hot spot after the areas are cleaned. He says the black tea helps dries the hot spots. That is what we want. So, I have plenty of tea I cannot drink. I plan to give this a attempt. 

I will let you know how Sammy is doing after a few days. Sammy is doing better on fresh food. Now, lets see if she heals with tea and aspirin. Oh yeah, she also on a over the counter allergy medication. I know the allergy medication will help while letting her sleep.
