Stay Aware: How to Treat Hot Spots on Dog and Why This Happens

WARNING: Sensitive images ahead.

I recently had to bring my dog to the vet for what seemed to be a skin condition. I took my dog grooming on Saturday and all was well with the groomer being able to handle him without even having to put a muzzle on him, which was rare since my dog's pretty defensive when being groomed. He had a nice cut and looked like a baby seal.

From this:
To this:
Two days later, I noticed two little spots (about a half inch) on his body which seemed to be just irritated skin. I gave him a bath thinking his skin must have gotten irritated somewhere. It didn't look bad, just a little pink.

On the third day, both spots had wounds. Now, they had some sort of liquid coming out of them. I cleaned the two areas with Hydrogen Peroxide (not a good idea - it was obviously painful - read on) and Betadine.

#LongWeekend Sunday Fest: Fat Melts

This weekend is by far the longest weekend I've had in more than a year. I opted to go on continuous leave. In celebration of July 4th, there's no work which makes my weekend 4 1/2 days long. YES. Day 1 was spent on watching The Book of Life (shout out to La Muerte's awesome makeup) and trying to recuperate from being sick for a long time (hello, expensive medication.) Day 2: Sunday was spent doing many things, which will be the primary of this post.

Aside from pizza and pasta (Sbarro), a movie (Despicable Me 3), coffee break and dessert (Manna), and a mass (Resurrection of Our Lord Parish Church - BF) ; we opted to end the day with dining at Fat Melts. But before I share that experience, I started to wonder if anyone was ever served latte art like this.

I'm still trying to debate whether it's a shuttlecock or it's...well..another form of...-_-.


Either way, what I really wanted to share was our experience in Fat Melts
Address: B.F. Homes Pergola Mall, Aguirre Ave. corner Elsie Gaches St., BF Homes, Sucat, ParaƱaque City
Phone: 0922 887 3531

To be more precise, it's in the tiny Robinson's by Ruins BF.

The food was yum. Although, the service could have been better. Maybe it needed to have a hint of smile and more attention. No complaints on the food. Here's a quick view of Fat Melts Diner Menu:
