Does your pet excessively lick or bite a spot on their body? Texas A&M professors say that could cause infection.

Doctors say the spots usually start with allergies or a bug bite that your pet won’t leave alone. Officials say if you notice a spot on your pet, take them to a vet immediately.

Treatments could include anti-inflammatory and a special anti-itch cream. Doctors also recommend home remedies such as wrapping a t-shirt around the affected area so your pet can’t reach it.
