Cardinal Pet Care’s Remedy + Recovery Hydrocortisone Lotion Relieves the Discomfort of Hot Spots

Remedy + Recovery Hydrocortisone Lotion cools and soothes skin irritations

AZUSA, Calif. Pet lovers know the hallmark signs of a hot spot – redness, oozing, pain and itchiness, often accompanied by hair loss – and the misery it can cause their pets.  Quick relief is key, as a spot that may start off as a small area of inflamed skin about the size of a dime can quadruple in size – and suffering – in just a few hours.  Ideal for dogs, cats and ferrets, Cardinal Pet Care’s Remedy + Recovery Hydrocortisone Lotion’s fast-acting formula can help alleviate the pain and itchiness of hot spots, soothing irritated skin and helping them begin to heal.

Most hot spots are the result of some kind of irritant and sometimes a pet’s efforts to alleviate the itching by licking and scratching causes the area to become inflamed, raw and even itchier, which results in more scratching and a vicious cycle of itching, scratching and licking.  Fleas are often the trigger, but hot spots can also be caused by mites or other external parasites, insect bites or stings, skin injuries or allergies.  Some pets have even been known to start a hot spot out of boredom or stress.  Regardless of the cause, a hot spot makes pets miserable and causes a great deal of discomfort and suffering.  If pet lovers observe their charges scratching or licking excessively or notice the development of a hot spot, quick action with Remedy + Recovery’s Hydrocortisone Lotion will help prevent the situation from getting out of hand.   The soothing, cooling effect of this ultra-gentle lotion helps relieve a hot spot’s itching, burning and discomfort, so a pet is less inclined to scratch the area and the healing process can begin.

If the hot spot is large and/or deep, is bleeding, looks infected or does not begin to heal within a few days, Cardinal Pet Care advises pet lovers to contact a veterinarian for further treatment.
