Dog MD Maximum Defense™ Hot Spot Skin Remedy is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really does work! I've had my dog for almost 4 years and she's never had a hot spot.. until 4 days ago. It was small, and between her toes on her front paw. I spoke to my vet and they recommending trying an over the counter anti septic spray before bringing her in. I had no idea which one to try, but went to PetSmart, and found this gel. I quickly looked up any reviews I could find, and the few that were already posted here were great, so I bought it. I started using it on Wednesday, and now, two days later, it's essentially gone. My dog was even licking it less almost immediately. I couldn't recommend this product more. I attached photos to show the progress. The first one was before I applied the gel, and the second is today, after two days of using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely worth it. Works in a matter of a day. When you come home on a lunch break to see your little fur baby laying on the bed with blood peering through the fur, you start to panic. And when you gently move the fur to expose a spot that is literally the size of a fist, that makes you panic even more... You take to Google to hopefully find out what this may be seeing that nothing the vets prescribed (steroids and a topical spray) worked last year and with costs around $425 after multiple visits (Down to about $150 when submitted to Pet Insurance) trying that route just seems daunting. You find that quite a few people have the same situation with their fur babies and it turned out to be "Hot Spots". You then quickly embark on a Google search journey for the quickest remedy to sooth your “child’s” Hot Spot pain when you come across a product on Petsmart.com "Dog MD™ Maximum Defense Hot Spot Skin Remedy" that can be picked up today at your local Petsmart, but at the time of your research only had one review, but it was a 5 Star rating stating “IT WORKS....GET IT”. What do you do? What do you do..? We have all seen these types of reviews and end up taking them with a grain of salt (Like I did). So you do a little more research to find out what its active ingredient is… And it turns out to be “Benzalkonium chloride”. You start to research that and you find other 10, 20 and even 30 reviews on the internet of products that have the same active ingredient that also have 5-star ratings and state that “it works.” for Hot Spots. Could this be what you have been looking for? The “magic” topical gel that relieves your fur baby’s pain? To answer the question simply… YES!!! It does work. For my pup it was like a literal night a day difference 6 hours after the application of the Dog MD Hot Spot Gel... To answer the question in a more precise and complete manner; YES!!! It does work but you need to make sure you follow the instructions on the back of the bottle. Written out below with my findings added: 1) Trim the hair around the sore (This will make it easier to clean and apply the gel) 2) Wash the area prior to application with mild shampoo (I used baby shampoo) and gently pat it to dry the spot 3) **Step added** Wash again with just water to remove any possible leftover soap residue. 4) Apply using the applicator tip works but I found that a gauze pad works better to spread the gel lightly 5) Repeat the steps twice daily Pictures 1) Right after first cleaning/trimming the hair 2) 6 Hours after the first Dog MD Gel application I hope this review helps others come to a much quicker decision than I did about this product as it will save your pup time in pain, money in your wallet for vet visits and prescription meds as well as the overall satisfaction of making your loved one feel better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS....GET IT I was unsure about buying at first since there were no reviews. But I figured it was worth a try. This stuff works!!!! My Min Pin has allergies in the Spring and her belly always breaks out in these sores. They start out as little pimples and then from her licking they run into sores. I have been to the vet several times with no fix and to a Homeopathic vet which helped but still not 100%. She just recently had a rash and it was bad. I purchased this at PetSmart and also got her a cone. After just 2 days her belly is pretty much all dried up and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved! My Yorkie recently had a hot spot from bad allergies and her licking. When I read the reviews on this product I decided to give it shot and this stuff worked wonderfully! I have added two picture to this review, the first is the hot spot when I first found it and the second is just from one day of using this product. I am very happy I found this because it saved me a trip to the vet! I do recommend buying a cone because she tried to lick it off but overall I definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I just bought this product last night. Followed the directions and put it on my dog's tail. I am seeing results very quickly. Best part he has stopped wanting to bite and itch his tail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electric Fence Collar Wound A horrible wound happened on my son’s dog Sky’s neck from the electric fence collar - I can barely talk about it because it was horrific. My son and I tried this product in a hopeful panic as we couldn’t believe what had happened - this product healed the area in an amazing way. We learned dogs do not express pain in the way that might be expected. Sky never whimpered or stopped acting like happy active dog. How she could go on with this wound is actually kind of heartbreaking - we check her often now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth buying!!! It's amazing how fast this stuff works. Our vet recommended it to save us some money and our shi-poo is rash free within 24 hours of putting it on him!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instantly worked for my dog My dog ended up having to go to the doctors and needed an antibiotic injection, a medicated shampoo, medicated spray, oral anti itch medicine. And while all of that was needed because of the severity of the skin infection that developed, it was this blue concentrate that provided immediate relief for my pup. Those looking for the hard to find, Sulfodene Skin Medication for Dogs - Yellow concentrate, should try this blue concentrate as a replacement. I wish your pups the best!

How often can you use this product A DAY? Nothing on the bottle about that.

Asked by: My3sonspahoo
I applied twice a day, maybe once more if my dog licked it off, but after two weeks it cured it.
