Debbie Rockford, IL 4/28/2009 5:48:27 AM My dog is a Great Pyrenees and is now getting what is called, "Hot Spots." Scratchng with his nails or/and teeth, he loses fur. A lot but he has a lot too. I have been to the vet twice now (in 2 yrs.) and have to get some salve called, Animax. plus 2 prescriptions. One is Ciprofloxacin (antibiotic) and Prednisone (for itching). This time I am going to have to go back to the vet so he can get more meds. It did not heal as it did before. The Pyr's are known for these things. He is ok. Not sick or anything like that.
