Home Remedy

My darling black lab, Daisy, developed something I had never seen before in all my lifetime of pet ownership. Hot Spots. They were horrible and a whole bunch of them just cropped up overnight. Since we have had so many other goings on around here, a new vet bill was not in the budget. I perused the internet and found a home remedy so awesome that I have to share it with my internet peeps.

Disssolve 2 aspirins-I crushed my aspirins first- into a cup of hot tea. Add 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol. Trim the hair around each hot spot and apply mixture directly to the spots with a cotton ball or soft rag.

Works like a dream. They are almost all healed up. However, the trimmed hair around the spots makes her look a little pitiful.

She loves me even more if that can be possible. I made her owies all better. I'm thinking of trying it on the eczema spots on my hands from washing dishes by hand.

Hey, that's cool. I don't have a dog, but if we ever do I'll come to you for help.

Wow! I will have to remember this.

I'm glad you came across this remedy instead of going to the vet and paying, like a gazillion dollars to have the sores treated.
