Question by Rheasie.!(:: Jack Russell Terriers? Any Breeders or Owners with experience?
I own a 3yr. old Jack Russell Terrier (A.K.A Parson Jack Russell Terrier, Parson Russell Terrier).

My dog has been on the same type of food, BENEFUL. He gets enough food and exercise.

But, he had “Hot Spots.” Red spots underneath of his hind legs.
We used a spray “Cool Skin.” That worked.But, they keep comeing back if I forget to put the spray on. It doesn’t seem to bother him much. So we changed his food to a more heathier food recomended by a feed store owner. He has been doing much better. The new food “Halo” is better for him, anyways. This way he gets more nutrients.

I plan on consulting a vet ASAP. But I will not be able to for a few more days.

Any suggestions as to what I can do in the time being to help with the red spots?

Answer by chic
Read the label. Does BENEFUL have corn in it? I believe it does. Corn is a filler and #1 cause of skin problems.
