I think my dog has a skin disorder. I use Frontline plus & vaccuum regularly. He hahot spots on his inner front legs & paws. What can I do to keep him from making himself covered in scabs?

its probably an allergy. food or environmental, but likely food. what do you feed? if its low end, try gradually switching him to something w/o corn. dont feed him colored dog food- thats sugar and other garbage filler. diamond naturals is what we feed- chicken and rice- and thats a fairly inexpensive way to feed decent dog food.
for now, try wrapping it and or spraying it with a chew deterrent like bitter apple or something similar

Diamond has a number of recalls right now, so I would stay away from anything made by Diamond.

My vet's dog had allergies and the dog dermatologist had the pooch switch to Trifexis for flea & tick protection. It's a pill. I did that for my pooch. Mine continues to lick his paws. I've tried all kinds of things. Am currently trying derma paw. Found it online, it's all natural. I have to say my dog likes it and it does relax him. At their website they show you how to make suspenders for socks (to keep them on). My dog complies (which is very surprising).

if you go to the diamond web page, they have a map of affected areas in the states and a list of their affected food. they have been very forthcoming with information about the recall. i havent and wont switch my dogs from diamond until my state is blue on the map and my dog food is listed- complete with the affected lot numbers and expiration dates. people are freaking out about this, when NO dogs have died or gotten sick as a result.  calm down, do your homework. there are and have been dog food recalls frequently in the past, all varieties of brands. although i do feed diamond naturals, im not endorsing for any reason other than its pretty decent dog food for the price. i just get irritated when people freak out because of something they heard but havent followed up on with any legit data.

No dogs yet, but there are a number of people who have been hospitalized over it.
