I use the herb scullcap. The other way is using a cone.

I don't know if you have a PetSmart of PetCo or the like near you, but you can get them there....or call your vet???

My vet had the solid white plastic ones, so I bought my own, so that the dogs had some type of peripheral vision.

Have they checked to ensure no infection? Sometime staph can mimic this - even good vets can miss a true staph infection and will not treat it correctly.

She didn't mention anything about infection. I wasn't so fond of this vet they were nice but I just don't think ill go back. I have a few vets I recently got reccomended to, so next time ill check somewhere else. They were not rude just somthing didn't spark my intrest.

He iis doing good. His itching has been cut in half the redness is going away its just a light pink now the scabs are healing great and I have not seen him bite at all really. It seems to be working well for him!

Thank you! It is good to know he is finally feeling better it makes me so happy! Do you think it would be good to give him a bath. He has a lot of scab flakes everywhere. I tried getting it off with a wet rag. Giving a bath would kind of clean his skin off.

As for preventing hot spots would you suggest blow drying him?
