I need help with a dog that was given to us from my DH's boss. He's a yorkie and his name is Cassidy. Well I just noticed that he has this red spot on his back by his tail and it looks really painful. I'm pretty sure he was an inside dog. Here is a pic. I hope its nothing major I bought him a spray that helps with the itch but he just keeps licking at it.
Sorry if the pic is big.

It looks like something a vet needs to see.

It could be scabies which requires a quarantine and parasite medication. Its also contagious to humans. It could be a hot spot which will be made worse by a bug spray. I would shave the dog to start with, cone it and if you can't afford a weekend vet put it in a room with no carpet, no bedding (to prevent reinfection and spread of possible scabies) and bring it in on Monday.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I'm going to take him to the vet hospital they have inside petsmart.

 My guess would be a hot spot from an allergy.  But that is just a guess.

I bought him a spray for hot spots and gave him a cool bath with some oatmeal shampoo. Right now he is doing okay, he's not chewing at it as much as before.
